Can I migrate users, groups, and computers from one domain to another using LDIFDE.EXE and retain SID information?

I have an SBS server that I'm replacing with an EBS implementation.  SBS does not permit trusts, so I cannot use the Active Directory migration tool to migrate the AD objects to the new domain.  

Can I use ldifde.exe to export these objects and then import them into the new domain while retaining SID information?  I would like to avoid re-creating users and joining/un-joining every client workstation to the new domain and deal with local profiles, etc. etc.

No - you will lose the SID information.

This document is only relevant if joining the EBS server to the existing SBS domain.  We are not doing that.  We created a new domain outright.

If you create a new domain you will be losing all SID data. There is not a way to go about keeping the SID data since this data is a domain function.
