You must create your domain with same SID as it had before.
Also you have to re-create users with same SID as they had before.
You can see the SIDs with profiles command like:
# profiles -v NTUSER.DAT
ACL for $$$PROTO.HIV
Owner SID: S-1-5-32-544
Group SID: (NULL SID)
DACL: 8 entries:
Trustee SID: S-1-5-21-2535719703-1779805756-2758924810-1017
Trustee SID: S-1-5-18
Also you can set the domain's SID and users' SID explicitly with net
