I am starting a new test of this in a current Debian-Jessie-VM.
Took me some time to get the initial setup of "source" and "target" dirs
correctly ... now the samba-tool runs through at last.

a) question regarding the groups (seems the main problem here):

I get something like this for one group

Exporting groups
Ignoring group 'mygroup' S-1-5-21-2940660672-4062535256-4144655499-1010
listed but then not found: Unable to enumerate group members,
(-1073741722,No such group)

and something like this for all users:

Exporting users
Ignoring group memberships of 'user'
S-1-5-21-2940660672-4062535256-4144655499-1036: Unable to enumerate
group memberships, (-1073741724,No such user)

What does that mean? That the users and the group don't exist in
/etc/passwd and /etc/group on the new server? I realize I could try as I
write this ... no, does not change a thing.

b) I want to change the stupid workgroup-name from OFFICE to something
useful ... I assume that's problematic as the clients would have to be
rejoined then?

thanks, Stefan
