You mean comment out the python stuff?  I can't seem to find that 
message.  Can you give it to me again?

I'm wondering if there's a better approach to this?  I only have around 
30 accounts.  Is there any way that I can just create the same domain 
from scratch with a fresh Samba machine and get rid of the old DCs 
completely?  Would all the workstations be able to join the new domain 
even though it would have the same name?
