Recently I have tried Samba AD DC (Samba4), because I want migrate our 
Samba 3 installation to Samba AD DC (Samba4). My tests were 
successfully, I could migrate a copy o f my samba 3 installation.

Now I want to migrate my real installation to Samba4 but my question is 
about packaging. For now there is not a  v4.0 stable Samba package in 
Debian Wheezy, and I don't want install a rc version.

  I can compile and install Samba 4 in Debian, but what about a future 
migration to official and stable packages provided by Debian? How 
painfull would it be such a migration?

Can someone confirm what archives does contain the essential domain data 
(Kerberos, LDAP, DNS, etc) to migrate in the future to a packaged Samba 

Any answer or suggestion is welcome

Thanks, Federico
