Is the new server also a samba server? You should be able to configure
it as a workgroup server or domain BDC.

My experience is that if already have an LDAP backend, and if you are
already using LDAP for unix level account management, that the BDC is
the better approach since it helps keep all your Windows and Unix id's
consistent on both machines.
