Thank you very much, your document was very interesting! We will not
upgrade to AD DC now, but maybe later.

Denis, is this a _new domain_ (with the same name)? Or just a _new server_ where you placed the profiles. If it's a _new domain_, then Rowland is surely right and it is an SID problem. But you talked about a _new server_. Please be more clear about your environment. Regards, Marc
 Yes, you're right, I must clarify a little more on this point: You were
right, what we *WANT* to do is simply to replace the old PDC under Samba
3 by the new PDC under Samba 4. (Simply a new server). But what we
*DID*, is in fact to configure a _new domain_ with the same name.
Therefore, I agree that it the problem is SID related, and if I
understand you correctly, this is the wrong way to do it! We should
instead configure a new server with same domain, right? Thank you very
much for your appreciated help, Best regards, Denis OK, If you just want
to have a new replacement PDC, you need to: A) Install your OS of choice
B) Install samba4 C) Get the Domain SID from your old PDC D) Use your
old smb.conf as a template for your new one, checking that all the old
lines are still valid, refer to 'man smb.conf'. If you have a 'socket
options' line in your old conf file, remove it!, you are likely to be
making things worse. E) run 'net setdomainsid <SID YOU GOT EARLIER>' F)
start smbd,nmbd & winbind If it is possible, use the same ipaddress &
hostname of the old server for the new server. Rowland -- To unsubscribe
