Backing up samba4

I have run 'samba-4.0.0rc1/source4/scripting/bin/samba_backup' after 
creating /usr/local/backups. I now have three files in 
/usr/local/backups, two of these are easy to deal with, just copy their 
contents back to where they come from.
The third is a bit different, samba4_private contains the backups 
created by tdbbackup, these files end in .ldb.bak. If I just copy the 
contents of samba4_private back into place, I will end up with, for 
instance,  hklm.ldb & hklm.ldb.bak, what do I do now?
Is it just as simple as ensuring samba is not running, then deleting 
hklm.ldb and renaming hklm.ldb.bak to hklm.ldb, or is there something 
else I need to do.
