Betreff: [Samba] Setting a vampired Samba4 as RID Master

  Dear All,

I vampired a Samba4 from a Windows 2003 Server AD. My idea was to 
transfer all users and groups, then shutdown the Windows 2003 AD and 
promote Samba4 as Operations Master. I have been able to do so with the 
Infrastructure and Main Domain Controller roles but not with the RID 
role. Is there a hack or manual operation I can do to have a completely 
independent AD based on Samba4 that will mantain all users and groups 
from the former Windows 2003 AD.

I'm not sure if this question belongs to samba or samba-technical but I 
will start here to avoid bugging the guys on the technical list.

Kind regards and thanks in advance for your help,
