[Samba] smb.conf sync

I already have a clustered config between my servers data partitions, is 
it possible to move my tdb files there and tell samba those tdb files 
are there?
Is this meet the requirements of ctdb solution?
I think I can give a try to syncronise my sysvol directory  like this 
way, since the users and IDs should be identical.

What are you think about this?

Regards, Robert
