moving samba driver config files to backup server...

I am having difficulty in my attempt to copy samba tdb files to a backup server
for failover purposes. I am currently doing this manually but would like to
eventually use rsync...
The problem is that when i copy the various /samba/var/locks/*.tdb files to the
faliover server the driver information is not available when the backup takes
over - any attempt to dl drivers from the second server fail - checking
properties on the printer via NT shows no drivers available. I can re-add the
drivers and everything proceeds normally. Once this is done there are no
problems with swithcing between the two servers.
My ? is:
Which tdb's and/or other files are needed to successfully port a server
configuration to a second server for failover purposes [which require all
drivers to be available as soon as the failover is complete..] ?
I am currently copying:
/samba/printers/* [the drivers]
and others [printcap, smb.conf, hosts, smbpass, ....]
file permissions are preserved...
the drivers are the big deal right now. Anyone have suggestions?
any and all input is apprectiated.
BTW: Samba 2.2.3-pre w/o winbind on RH-VALE 6.2.4
