You addressed this comment to Stefan, but I think you meant to address 
me.  Yes, guilty as charged, and excellent advice. I was about to say 
this about myself.

Last time I went full steam on a Samba install was deploying a PDC with 
roaming profiles back in the Samba 3.6.18 days. This install was so 
robust that we didn't touch it for over a decade; it just worked.

I'm starting to wrap my brain around the "new ways" and really 
appreciate all the help I get from this list.
