Hi Maik,

it can be done in one week ;-) You could migrate your domain and keep
all your users. For the migration it dosn't matter if you are using
openLDAP or tdb as backend for your domain. If you migrate you will keep
your netbios domainname. You can mirgrate all users and groups having a
SID in your old domain. As long as the PDC ist NOT a filserver too, it
will work easy.
