I recently upgraded an AD member server from Samba 3.5.15 to Samba 3.6.9 
and found that I had lost all the existing local group mappings.

I see that the group mapping file has gone from group_mapping.ldb to 

Was there a conversion/upgrade procedure I should have found and used? 
Online documentation I can find says it is for the 3.5 series of samba, 
does updated documentation for 3.6 exist somewhere?

Does a group mapping migration procedure exist, or will I need to 
recreate it from scratch?  On this initial trial of Samba 3.6 only a few 
groups existed, on the larger production machines the story is different 
and recreating the groups and memberships will be a chore.
