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 problems.

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 ?
