Hello All,
I'm looking for some advice \ shared past experiences of users on the list.
I am in the process of planning a migration from an existing NT Domain to
a Samba 3 / LDAP based domain. However, the existing NT4 PDC is also home
to our Exchange 5.5 email server which we would like to keep in service.
I imagine what i need to do is add the old NT4 PDC server to the new Samba
Domain once i have completed the migration. I am not sure how to do this
?. I have found this software (U Promote ) at
http://www.purenetworking.net/Products/UPromote/UPromote.htm that may do
the trick.
Has anyone out there performed a task similar to this or used this product
? or is it even necessary. Is there another (free) way ?.
Ian Clancy
