Decoding Samba and LDAP

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
I have run into a bit of a problem with my LDAP and Samba after my IT guy left.  We had a functioning LDAP / Samba environment running on Linux Centos.  A server went partially down forcing us to bring up a second LDAP server.  We have not been able to tie the new Ldap into the previous Samba share.  Ideally we should probably migrate the old Samba share off the server and reinstall Linux.  I have searched the helps, but still am fishing.  Can anyone tell me how to get the old Samba share up an running with the new Ldap?  And ideally the best way to transfer Samba to a new server?
