You probably just missed setting the SID;  make sure net getlocalsid
returns the same thing on the new PDC as it did on the old PDC (use "net
setlocalsid").  I believe the local and domain SID on a PDC are always
the same.

[root at littleboy openldap]# net getdomainsid
SID for local machine BARBEL is: S-1-5-21-2037442776-3290224752-88127236
SID for domain BACKBONE is: S-1-5-21-2037442776-3290224752-88127236
