Well, very little in life is without risk :-)

There is however a tool to help you with this and a wiki page that 
describes how to use it:


I would create a VM to test this in, rather than just ploughing in :-)

There are a few gotchas, such as you will need to change any normal user 
& group SIDs that have RIDs less than 1000, note that I am not talking 
about users like 'Administrator' or groups like 'Domain Users', just 
normal users & groups.

Try to use the latest supported version of Samba that you can.

Any questions, problems etc, just ask.
