[Samba] How do I upgrade from 2.2.5 to 2.2.8

Yep, it's real important to be able to roll back! Does anyone know exactly
which .tdb files need to be copied? I suspect some of them should NOT be
copied over. I just did an upgrade from 2.2.6 to 2.2.8 and DID copy over:
ntdrivers.tdb ntforms.tdb ntprinters.tdb share_info.tdb
did NOT copy:
brlock.tdb browse.tdb connections.tdb locking.tdb messages.tdb printing.tdb
This seemed to work - dunno if it's optimal.

I use the method of creating a complete new install directory. If you
are going to install 2.2.8, then use the directory samba.2.2.8 as the
base of the install. This way you can install the new version while the
old version is still running. When you are ready you can then stop the
old version and start the new one. If things go really bad, you can
just start the old version back up and work on fixing the new one with
minimal impact on the users.
