Not found anything yet...

Sure. Though if something mysterious is going on, it may be a sign of
another problem..

GUIDs changing are not a problem right now, as we will only be starting
to use the AD functionality once the migration is complete. For now it
just has to behave like a KDC / ldap combination. I did not find how to
stick the kerberos keys extracted from MIT into samba in a reasonable
amount of time; therefore I went for this classicupgrade approach... Thanks,
