I currently have a pure samba domain running off a Suse 9.1 machine.
When I installed this domain I wasn't really comfortable with linux or
LDAP so I used a tdbsam password file, and as there are only 30 or so
users it seemed the way to go in the small amount of time I had

LDAP backend.  I only have two boxes at my disposal so I'm hoping I can
run Samba PDC and master LDAP on one and Samba BDC and slave LDAP on the

I figure I should set up the second box as a master LDAP, transfer the
accounts from the original box, then I can start afresh with the old
machine and make it into a BDC/slave LDAP.

Is that even possible?  Has anyone done this, and did you run into any

Thank you
