Hey List-

What are the appropriate files to be backing up on a samba PDC?

I'm thinking:
/usr/local/etc/samba/  directory
/var/db/samba/   directory
/etc/passwd & /etc/master.passwd

This is running on FreeBSD as the PDC of the domain. If I need to rebuild or 
wipe and upgrade this box I do not want to have to re-install all the Windows 
clients into the domain and into the machine.

Did I miss anything or need anything else?
