I also prefer staying with 'rid', yes. thanks.

Just checking with krb and resolv.conf etc (correcting the domain).

How would you recommend to proceed here:

right now the "fallback hardware" is running as DM, with the server name
"samba" and the final IP.

Unjoin the fallback server before shutting it down ... ? To move the
name and IP over to the new system?

I mean, I will have to prepare the new system in parallel and keep the
downtime low ... and avoid duplicate names etc

Maybe I overcomplicate things ;-)
