Samba 4.5 and newer

Post by dawne » 2019/05/10 21:04:11

Hello.
Quick question.

I have customer running Centos 6.10, and is looking for a newer version of Samba. (> 4.5)
I did not see any newer versions of Samba in the CentOS mirror repository, only saw the version 4.2.10 in the os repo. Is this something I need to retrieve myself directly from samba.org?

Thank you.
Dawne

CentOS 6 only has samba 3. CentOS 7 has a version of samba 4 but I think it lacks functionality.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!
