Dear Mourik,

Yes that is the way.

I do suggest that you re-consider.

If you are deploying as
AD DC + DC member (2 Server solution)
Your DC member should be the one with this netbios name.
As this is the samba server that your share going to be that make the
//oldNetBiosName still work...

And your AD DC should have a new name.

I regard on this one on my last deployment...
