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
