The better way is to make the first server into a DC for a classic NT4-
style domain and use the OpenLDAP backend.  There are guides on how to
convert into LDAP.  Both DCs can reference the same LDAP server or
replicas.  This is the smallest-change approach.

Or, set up a full Samba AD domain and get the advantages of a full AD
