Thanks, I explain better the environment

-I have a Samba 3 domain mounted with file server included. For a
technical reason I need to config a new machine with the DC upgrading to
samba 4. I'm using LDAP separated and the idea is to maintain. Now I ask
for some guide to migrate samba 3 to samba 4 and separate file server
from DC.

-In my case I can't stop the old domain and I will need to have a time
with two domains.

Im looking that really all the guides are to configure a samba but not
how to upgrade samba +ldap.

Thanks :-)
