I read in the samba news, that everyone should update from Samba 3.6 to 4.x 
since Samba 3.6 will be discontinued by the release of 4.2.

Is it possible just to remove/deinstall the Samba 3.6 package and then install 
the wheezy-backports of 4.1.11? Will all configuration and stuff be still 
there? Do I have to do further configurations to run the still NT4-Style 

What is the common way to use samba in a heterogen environment?

Acutally, we have an OpenLDAP,Kerberos,NFS4 environment for linux clients with 
samba 3.6 to integrate windows clients with an NT4-style domain. What is an 
good way to use Samba4 and the AD features? The linux clients needs fast 
read/write file access to the file server during scientific simulations. 
That's why we use NFS up to now.
