[Samba] We need to change our AD domain

Hi All,

As a result of a company restructure and name change we need to change 
our AD domain. I know that we can't change the AD domain name in Samba 
4, so I'm looking at the smoothest way to migrate everything from one 
domain to another.

Is there any (properly working) way we can export users, groups and 
policies from one domain and import them into another? I've spent a few 
months getting everything just the way we want it and would greatly 
prefer not to have to start from scratch. Incidentally, I don't care 
about the computer accounts, as they will be dealt with by the normal 
unjoin/rejoin process.

Any tips, advice or warnings anyone cares to share about this process 
would be greatly appreciated.
