I'm hardly an SMBLDAP expert, but my best guess would be to setup the
new box as you did the old box, but make the new box an ldap slave to
the old box and let ldap do all the replication of user data itself.
Once that's done and you're convinced it works, shut down the old ldap
server and "promote" the slave box to being stand-alone and change the
smbldap configs accordingly.

Note that I've never *actually done* any of the above, but it seems like
it ought to work. In theory, anyway.
