Hmmm ... same text as I was using.   The issue I had with the script is that there is no way to tell it to use a specific SID on a new install so it generated a unique SID (instead of being able to apply the old DOMAIN SID).  Then, net setlocalsid SID worked in the sense it set the machine SID, but net rpc getsid still gets the wrong SID (which seems to come from the LDAP entry) to place in the secrets.tbd file.  I guess the BDC option works around this.

Just to be clear, I run the ./smbldap -t bdc at the console on which machine?  The current PDC, or the server-to-be-the-BDC?

Definitely, don't need to go through this again.

Words I will keep in mind in the wee hours on Saturday.
