I'm a bit confused. In past month many users write here about DB
corruption on upgrade (to 4.9 atleast).
Probably i get lost, but i was convinced that the best upgrade path
was, as Sven wrote, was uninstall samba and rejoin it (migrating FSMO
roles as needed).

So, a direct upgrade to 4.8 can be done? Thanks.
