 I apologize for not explaining why I am asking this. Recently we had to move a subset of our users off of the primary server as it houses our administration users home directories and my documents. When we moved these users I had all kinds of trouble with them not pulling the profiles like it should have and from the proper server. But since I am not changing the machines name, I don' think I will have similar issues. Am I correct in assuming this?

The current machine is EOL, running Fedora 11 (old), and had way too many services on it to start with (mail, dns, samba, mysql replication, primary ldap, etc). I am looking to move to a Xen domu with either Fedora 13 or Centos 5.5. What my question is is this: > what should I look for when I migrate the samba install to the new machine. > > We use OpenLDAP backend for authentication if that matters for anything. I will most likely keep the machine name the same but will change the IP. I know in the other servers that we have that rely on this one as the PDC I will need to change every reference of its IP address. But I am making sure there is not any "gotcha" deals. > -- > > Donny B. > -- > To unsubscribe from this list go to the following URL and read the > instructions: https://lists.samba.org/mailman/options/samba -- To unsubscribe from this list go to the following URL and read the instructions: https://lists.samba.org/mailman/options/samba
