If you're doing a full-fledged "bring up new server with
same ip address and disks" kind of failover, samba
will work automagically.
At the opposite extreme, you can have a commented-out
section in the smb.conf file that brings up a virtual
server for another department, and put it in place
manually when the other department's server blows up.
