[Samba] How can I change the localSID for a SAMBA Server?

Hi Rowland,

We need to change the SID on a standalone server because it needs to also
act as a File Server. The authentication comes from LDAP, and we have
existing entries in LDAP for SID of the domain. Instead of change all the
SID in ldap, we would like to be able to change it on the server.

Hope this helps.
