Betreff: Re: [Samba] Moving Samba PDC to new machine

 I apologize for not explaining why I am asking this. Recently we had to
move a subset of our users off of the primary server as it houses our
administration users home directories and my documents. When we moved =
users I had all kinds of trouble with them not pulling the profiles like =
should have and from the proper server. But since I am not changing the
machines name, I don' think I will have similar issues. Am I correct in
assuming this?
