Gee, I really don't know all that I have to do.

I have a REAL NT server PDC. Been running since '96. At various times I 
have had BDCs as well. I do have WINS configed on the server and had had 
it on some other Win2000 boxes which are now gone. Every system 
accessing the domain is just configured to use the PDC as their WINS server.

Each user has the home directory share and a login script.

I got to migrate all of that.

I am setting up the new box on a double-NATed net so it will have the 
same IP address as the current server and the same host/server name and 
same domain name.

Oh, and of course I will need to get all the current systems registered 
to the new server once it is in place....

I thought about having the new samba server be a BDC and then promote it 
to a PDC, but then I would still have to work out how to change its name 
and IP address to the same as the current box.
