If you create a new domain, it will be virtually an empty domain (just
the required users and groups to run it), so any users, groups and
computers will be new users. This means that any existing data will
belong to 'old' users and groups, even if they have the same name in the
'new' domain, so yes you would have to reset all the permissions.
