A couple questions...

1) I've downloaded the latest samba source files and obtained the backup
script.  Ubuntu's distribution of samba installs to different locations than
compiling from source from what I can tell yet I haven't been able to find
any references online that dictate exactly what directories need to be
backed up to create valid archives on Ubuntu, could you provide some insight
in this regard?

2) How would I go about 'upgrading' a deployed Samba4 PDC from the version
provided by Canonical to one compiled from source?  Is it possible to do an
'in-place' upgrade or will I need to uninstall, compile the new version and
then redeploy?

Thanks again for all the help.
