Here is the situation: Currently I have Zentyal 3.2 running on my homeserver. Since it is ubuntu 12.04 there is less than a year to have another system running. I don’t want to wait until april 2017, so I am going to switch distro.
Zentyal 3.2 has samba 4 running. There are not many users (about 10) with their profiles and 5 group shares.
/home (on 2 2TB drives in mdadm raid1) and /var (seperate 250GB disk) are on separate partitions. / is on a 60GB SSD.
I would like to keep samba4 so I guess I will need NS 7a3 to use as new system.
How should I continue when I want to reuse homedirs and samba shares and shared printers? I have no mail running on this server, so don’t have to bother with backup of that.
What I explicitly want to know how to handle ownership and permissions on the new install.
