hi, i am currently searching for a samba howto that covers the migration
of a Samba 3 PDC to another piece of hardware (with changing
distributions from a discontinued SUSE 9.2 to CentOS 5 parallely). 

Until now i converted the smbpasswd backend to tdbsam, let the new
machine join the domain, and executed net rpc getsid. The i copied the
secrets.tdb and the passwd.tdb to the new machine. Unfortunately user
login doesn't work for the new one. In the end I am planing to turn off
the old one and to make the new machine the domain master.

Is there anything left that has to be done? Do i have to set new
best regards
