I am in the process of attempting a NT4 Domain to Samba migration
(3.2.5). I have been following the instructions at
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/ntmigration.html. I am
using an ldap backend. I am not convinced everything is set-up

Before I began I removed all /var/lib/samba/*tdb and shutdown smb and ldap.

At point 13 where you do `getent group` the Domain groups do not
appear. They exist in the ldap tree ou=Groups.

I have the joined the samba machine to the NT4 domain (point 14)

When I attempt pdbedit -Lw, I get:

sid S-1-5-21-1979685110-1467996072-351907979-500 does not belong to our domain
sid S-1-5-21-1979685110-1467996072-351907979-2998 does not belong to our domain
sid S-1-5-21-1979685110-1467996072-351907979-3010 does not belong to our domain

This sid is not the one that appears in my ldap sambaDomainName or
from the `net rpc getsid ` command. Also when I attempt `netgroupmap
list` (point 16) I get:
 net groupmap list
[2010/09/22 15:41:05,  0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_setsamgrent(3342)
  ldapsam_setsamgrent: LDAP search failed: No such object
[2010/09/22 15:41:05,  0] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldapsam_enum_group_mapping(3417)
  ldapsam_enum_group_mapping: Unable to open passdb

So something is wrong but I am not sure what. Can anyone offer any advise?
Thanks in advance,
