Question migrate samba pdc from one server to another

Hi there,

Hope this forum is adapted to my question. I have :
+ 1 Debian server with Samba set to authenticate users in the domain HOME (workgroup = HOME / domain logons = yes).
+ 3 Windows XP Laptops configured to belong to the domain HOME. So on startup, I'm invited to enter a login password that exists in Samba.

I wanted to change my server for a more powerfull one. So :
+ I bought the new server and installed it with Samba.
+ I copied all parameters from previous smb.conf
+ I copied all users accounts and files to the new server
+ I shutdown the old server and started the new one
Result: The Windows XP Laptops are not able to log into the domain.

What's the problem? Any idea?

Thanks for your help.

I found the answer:

to connect a computer to a network:
1. In Debian, add it's name in the samba computers
2. In Windows, add the computer to the domain
3. At that point, a password is automatically created for the computer user in samba

So if you want to be able to reconnect all computers, you must save the users accounts AND passwords
