If you have a single standalone server, and want that server's users to
become the users in an AD DC, you can convert your standalone server
into an NT4 (classic) DC by setting 'domain logons = yes'.
Then classicupgrade that DC into an AD DC.
You should ideally separate the AD DC from the fileserver, but at least
your users will have become AD users by then and you can join the old
file-server back to the domain (with no local users and a new SID).
Delete the secrets.tdb before re-joining so you reset that local
I hope this helps,
