Sorry, probably wasn't clear on what I meant by "local users".
Virtually all of the users are "Windows" users, but they needed to be
added as Linux users (albeit with no login shell) locally to the PDC
before they could be added to Samba 3 (also forgot to mention that
this is a tdb based Samba 3 PDC). And my concern is that once this
existing server authenticates to a new AD that whatever method is used
(Winbind, etc) the uid/gid's of these users will be different and
therefore file permissions, etc. will need to be remapped.
