Well, the *.local to *.lan change was much easier than I expected. 

I did have to scratch my head for a minute and then realized that the
MEMBER server would have to rejoin the "new" *.lan domain controller.

Once again, thanks Rowland!!!

Obviously, the hostname needs to be corrected and check any needed changes within the smb.conf file. Thoughts?

However, I have created them with a *.local TLD (that now I need to change.) I will need to adjust my hostname files, need to re-configure the kerberos install and of course Bind9. The hostname files I know how to change. No problem there. The kerberos install, I think can be re-configured with 'dpkg-reconfigure'. Don't bother, use the krb5.conf that the *NEW* DC provision creates, copy it to /etc/ on both machines. As I have no experience (until now) with Bind9, this is my biggest concern! What do I change? Absolutely *nothing* It should pickup the new files that
*new* provision creates. What other needed changes have I overlooked? OR Do I (build (re-build) two servers) all over again? Well, I think that you need to re-provision the domain. Rowland At this point, I am at the planning "what needs to be done" stage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. --- ------------------------- Bob Wooden of Donelson Trophy 615.885.2846 (main) www.donelsontrophy.com [1] [2 [1]] [2 [2]] "Everyone deserves an award!!"

Maybe there should be a BIIIIIG not inside the wiki? I updated 
 the wiki
yesterday in three places saying not to use .local, I believe that Marc has also updated the DNS page as well. Problem is, most people seem to ignore the wiki. Rowland Stefan -----BEGIN PGP
