I am in the process of planning for a samba upgrade. The current version
of Samba (2.2.8a) runs on a Sunfire 280R with Solaris 8. The intended
new platform is a sunfire V240 with Solaris 9 as the OS. The new version of
Samba will be Samba-3.0.10. Please note that the Samba server will be a
member of a domain.

I've read Samba-3 by Example, Chapter 8 which describes to the process of
updating from Samba 1.x and 2.x (without LDAP). It all seems very straight
forward but refers to doing the upgrade on the same box. In my case I will
will be doing a migration to a new box and an upgrade at the same time.

My plan is to prepare the V240 by installing samba3, and create the users.
I will then stop the samba2x, move the smbpasswd, smb.conf and tdb files
(including secrets), and move the data files over from the old server. I
will then shutdown old 280R and restart the new V240 with the ip address of
the the old server. I will then restart the samba daemon on the new server.

I am hoping that with the old server already a member of the domain and the
fact that I will be using the same ip address it will not be necessary to
rejoin the domain. I am hoping this will work because I have had no luck in my
attempts to setup Samba3 as a test server (different ip address and netbios
name) and have it join the domain. The test machine account has been created
and recreated a number of times but I keep getting challenged for
a password and end up with 'unable to join the domain' (Frustrating).

Any comments/suggestions on the above plan will be much appreciated. This
has been a work in progress for sometime now and I would really like to
move along.

One more question: If my attempt with Samba3 fails would there be any
problems restarting the old 2.x server?

My conf file follows.

Thanks much in advance for all comments/suggestions.
