Can't restart ssh after merging Usr/Grp files

I'm migrating one of my older servers currently running 4.7-prerelease to a
new box running 4.8-RC.
I backed up the master.password and group files.
I copied the master.password file over as master.password.new and the group
file over as group.new
moved them both to /etc
pwd_mkdb -p master.password.new
cp group.new group
I checked all of the users and groups and they appear to match up
correctly. su to other users works fine, but when I tried to open up
another ssh connection to this remote server, I'm getting a Connection
Closed. I tried to restart sshd, but I got
Failed to start SSH server : Privilege separation user sshd does not exist
I still have a ssh session running as root.
Any help would be Much appreciated!
