Duplicate existing Server config to another Server


I have set up a Linux/Samba server and it took a long time to get it perfected so it would communicate properly with my Windows network. I want to put a second one in place but don't want to have to go through all the work of setting it up. Is there any easy way to duplicate all the settings on to this new server to minimize config and install time?

Yea just backup the config files in /etc and copy them over, make some modifications to the config files if necessary.

Ok I will try this. I was just worried because I had to install several services like openldap, kerberos, samba etc.. and I didn't know if the /etc directory contained all this info...
