Visit http://sunfreeware.com/
pick the platform in the right pane i.e. Sparc/Solaris 8 or x86/Solaris 8.
Then download the samba 3.4.2 package.

Alternatively, if you want to compile it yourself.

Look at the README/INSTALL documents within the source package you reference.

You may want to explore setting up the new version first given it may address/resolve some security issues or adds features not present in the prior version while not having any adverse impact on the clearcase.

as easily as the sunfreeware package can be added (pkgadd -D ) it can be removed pkgrm.

As the document amolg references includes the guide as well as other dependencies that need to be installed.
