To test I've created a new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and followed the HOWTO, successfully creating a blank Samba AD and testing adding users/PC's and connecting with Windows AD tools. I then attempted the classicupgrade (rolled VM back and copied .tdb files and smb.conf from current PDC) but I'm getting several errors.

I'd wager the error message is exact and meaningful - you have a
duplicate sambaSID in your LDAPSAM. Also the machine account "watersan
$" contains a space. That seems odd.
I had several of these inconsistencies in my old LDAPSAM that I needed
to correct before the upgrade completed.
