[Samba] How to add a second Samba DC to create homogeneous multi-DC domain?

For sake of failover it's time for me to add a second samba DC to a
domain with a single samba DC. At present, there's only one samba DC.
There are no Windows DCs.

The documentation seems a little dated:


Apparently a SysVol replication workaround must be implemented:


Does only one server at a time own the FSMO roles?

Is it OK for the new DC to use 4.5 if the existing DC uses 4.1?

What's missing? Are there any other things to consider?

Thank you,
