No, SAMBA1 is a DC and SAMBA2 is another DC.


Er no, your DCs shouldn't be getting their IP via DHCP, they should
have a fixed IP.

Yes, they will, sorry for the confusion... I was simply referring to the fact that all other computers on the LAN will know about all 4 DCs :)

Why ? You could do this once the new DCs are up and running.


This should work.


You should try to transfer the FSMO roles first and this will not make
it the PDC, it will just make it the DC with all the FSMO roles, a PDC
is something else entirely.

Fair enough. So, a 'fsmo transfer' rather than a 'fsmo sieze' then is preferable?

If you want to remove SAMBA1, you will need to demote it, it will not
be done automatically.

OK, this one - https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Demoting_a_Samba_AD_DC ?

I would only demote and remove the two old DCs once the two new ones
are working correctly. You will also need to sync sysvol between the
old and new DCs.

Yes, will do.

Finally, you will still be using schema version 47

Ah, so I need to do this last then?
