[Samba] Need help in samba configuration

I have never tried "unjoining" a domain.
I think the approach would be to
1- update smb.conf to change security to user
2 - delete the SambaMachine account from your Windows PDC.
You can't me in more than one domain. however you can set up trusts
between windows and/or samba domains. (Although I haven't quite got
that working properly.)
