Hi Rowland - It was krb5-user, libpam-winbind and libnss-winbind. But this was partly due to not having the Universe repo installed from the Ubuntu 18 Live image (this has to manually added when using the live image).

I've copied across idmap.ldb from the old (only) DC. Assuming no changes, I can just replicate Sysvol prior to migration?

What was missing ?
The wiki may need updating.

You still need to manually sync Sysvol between DCs and you should
also sync idmap.ldb from the DC holding the 'PdcEmulation' FSMO role to
all other DCs
