I want to move my Samba 3.0.10 server which is acting as PDC and
WINS server to a new server with a differenent hostname and IP address.
The old server is being used as a NIS+ server which means it would
be very difficult for me to move the old hostname and IP to the new server.
I have used the IP of the old server in the WINS server settings in DHCP
and have set it by hand on a handful of PCs with don't get there IP
address by DHCP. I realise I will have to change that IP address in DHCP
and the clients.
I know what files I need to copy from one server to another.
Is it sufficient to set netbios name = the old name on the new server
given that the old name will still correspond to the old server in DNS?
