Hi Igor,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Just curious whether you have read my previous email regarding the 
different setup for my side.  I have :-
Domain A controller :- openldap 2.1.23 (slave), samba 3.04 (PDC)
Domain B controller :- openldap 2.1.30-3 (slave), samba 3.07 (PDC)
Main LDAP server : - openldap 2.0.27-3.bunk (master).

Question 1:- Wonder if there will be a problem with the openldap setup? 
  Should I upgrade all the LDAP to have same version?
Question 2:- If I were to upgrade Domain A to samba 3.07 (as I thought 
there could be a potential problem with the trusting/trusted domains), 
any clue of how can I upgrade to samba 3.07 without losing the SID or 
any problems?    I was thinking of doing the following:-
1.  Backup the smb.conf file
2.  smbldap-conf file (containing the SID number).
Is there any thing I left out?  Will the SID be changed?  The reason I 
ask was because I already got a domain member server under domain A 
(samba 3.04) and I do not want to lose the SID cos I have like 260 
users's home directory in that domain member server (windows 2003 server).

Thanks in advance.
