What exactly was the error or symptom?

Did you try the backup and restore I suggested?

If the only issue is the RID, there are ways to get past that - changing the nextRid for example, but you might wish to engage professional Samba support.

I get the impression you are pretty stressed.  One of the things I've seen with stressed administrators over the years is big jumps without careful notes.  Take each step slowly, get good advise (here or professionally) and note down each time what works, what doesn't etc.  Do this before you move to the next step.

If you can do a trail run in a (truly) disconnected LAB while leaving production untouched then it can be less stressful.  The backup/restore tools change the major keys, which can avoid the networks talking to each other, so please don't ignore them!
