How do I install Samba on Solaris 10 Intel?
   - Include the correct download from Samba
   - Be very explicit. This is a new arena for me.
   - Windows 2003 native mode

You can get Samba "installed" by either downloading it from http://www.sunfreeware.com or using pkg-get from Blastwave.   I personally like Blastwave as it handles package dependencies very nicely which Sunfreeware doesn't.  The User's Guide at Blastwave has the "explicit" instructions you need to install Samba.


"Configuring" Samba is another matter.  I'm no Samba expert.

Don't forget that samba is included with Solaris 10.

I am not finding anything in regards to the Kerberos portions of the install.  Since I am in a w2k3 environment native mode this is very relevant to my required explicit instructions.

Thank you the samba is in the install of solaris 10.   I also notice they actually began packaging it with Solaris 9 thanks for that heads up.

I still need a working and tested kerberos integration installation guide which is required for a successful w2k3 native mode implementation.  Can you help me on this issue.
