secrets.tdb - byte order independent? (SPARC/INTEL)

Just on more last question on the NFS issue. Assume I have all my tdb on
the local drive will the following work or be okay.

server1 - Linux based NAS (type device) exporting it's local disk via NFS
server2 - Linux based server running Samba sharing out shares NFS mounted
from server1

Am I still asking for problems? What kind of problems have people seen out
there? What technical reasons/issue would cause problems here? Does Samba
and NFS play well together (other than tdb) ?

Many thanks for all the help.
