Migrating a Windows Domain to Samba Control

  • Roderick W. Smith


Samba 3.0 adds new features that enable you to migrate a domain from a Windows NT 4.0 domain controller to a Samba domain controller. Before embarking on such a journey, you should plan it carefully, starting with asking yourself why you want to do it. Assuming you decide a migration is worthwhile, you must use special Samba tools to copy the existing Windows domain database, as well as domain support shares and files. You must then deactivate the old domain controller, activate the new one, and perhaps make changes to client configurations.
