Ok, no problem to recreate user data and settings on new clean Samba4, 
chown, GPO and so on, but AFAIK passwords cannot be transferred without 
cracking. I wanted to do  Win->Samba migration seamlessly for users and 
  yes - later they don't noticed this switch.
Now I just wanted to add uid to samba4 instead of current openldap server.
