Thanks. The server-role=member sounds good.

How do I then tell the clients (I have both Linux and xp and 7 in the 
domain) to look at the new fileserver?

Currently, the Linux boxes are automounting cifs and nfs. Presumably I 
will have to change all the /etc/auto. files on the clients. will there 
be any Kerberos probelm with the machine keys do you think? This would 
also mean changing profile, home and unixhome attributes in LDAP.
