What kind of Samba 4 installation do you have? An AD or an NT4-style
Domain? And is your server a member or a DC/PDC?
But if you configure the hostname and IP on the new machine the same
than on the old one, you simply have to move /usr/local/samba/ (or the
other places, where you have configured Samba to be located in) to the
new machine. I the architecture x86/x64/... does not change, this should
work. Otherwise I guess you have to recompile and install the
binaries/libraries/... over your existing installation. The database
files are, as far as I know, platform indepentend.
