Hi group

Quick question before I switch my domain from NT4 PDC to Samba-LDAP:
Can I leave the old NT-PDC in my subnet, if I just disable it's netlogon 

Reason: This old NT-Server has a database running which is still needed 
after the migration to samba, but it doesn't need to have any 
NETBIOS-NTDomain functionality after the switch, just TCP-IP.

I know of third-party tools like UPromote, but if I can avoid them, I 
think this is a much easier and transparent way of doing it.

Thanks for comments
