what I unterstand is, to set up an samba PDC server using PAM or LDAP
from scratch. (Lots of Doc on the web)

But my problem is, how to migrate a Samba PDC to one using PAM or LDAP.
As I understand, I can not take over the existing machine accounts nor the
user passwords from smbpasswd to the new authentication enviorment,
if I have used  "encrypt passwords = yes" .

So are there any reports or best-practice documents on these type of

Thanks for help
