Should I try to transfer roles first?

Right. In case the role seize works out, I have to get rid of my current dc1.
But I guess I CAN create a NEW install, call it dc1, and join it as a new domain controller?

(i mean: the name dc1 in our domain is not 'contaminated' or so, it's just this specific samba installation called dc1 that should never appear again?)

Thanks for your reply.
