-Upgrading from an older samba4 installation.
-* Compile the new version of samba4 by following the HOWTO, but do
-  not install it yet, and do not run provision.
-* Stop any samba process
-* Backup your samba4 provision:
-  go into the directory where your samba4 provision is stored (/usr/local/samba by default)
-  do tar cf $HOME/backup.tar private etc var sysvol
-* do make install
-* run 'samba-tool dbcheck'
-This will do a consistency check of the data, and is all most existing
-installations will require.
-If you are upgrading from a quite old provision (Samba 4.0 alpha 13 or
-earlier) then running upgradeprovision will do an upgrade of security
-descriptors, and upgradeprovision --full will perform a more
-comprehensive upgrade of the data (including schema and display
-specifiers).  This attempts to do a new provision, and to then copy
-existing data into that database.
-If you are upgrading from a more recent version, particularly alpha16
-or later, then it is better *NOT* to run upgradeprovision as the
-database format has not changed.
-To upgrade from BIND9 flat files to the internal database store for
-Bind 9 DLZ, use ./source4/scripting/bin/samba_upgradedns
