I have inherited a Samba server and would like to migrate the
installation to a new machine. We are using Samba as a PDC and my
currrent worry is what users will see on their desktop (as well as
other changes?) once they log on to the new server.

As a test I have logged on with my laptop (running WinXP virtually) and
I get a completely blank desktop (with the exception of the trash can).
Will users lose anything? I am unclear on this.

The current/old samba config is posted below. It is using LDAP but the
new config will not. Thank you very much.
