If you are using a fairly recent version of sssd, you are using a
version of a Samba winbind lib, so just changing to sssd shouldn't give

First and foremost, all your users & groups are stored in AD as windows
users & groups i.e. they have a SID-RID
So if you change a login name, it shouldn't affect anything else, so
when I asked how you changed the login name, perhaps I should have
asked, what did you change ?
