"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

hi all thanks for the support but these solutions i tried I feel some compatibility issues are coming.

Any idea  that this samba  version is compatible with Solaris8
samba-3.4.2-sol8-sparc-local.gz for solaris 8 sparc version...

I am installing samba for Clearcase so i am strict to the version as clearcase recommended this version
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.
