Hello,
I am very new to Samba but I currently have Samba 3.0.2a runing on a UNIX server and all is good with this installation.
My question is can i install Samba version 3.5.4 on the same UNIX server and then in a few day switch over the installations so that version 3.5.4 becomes the installed version and then remove 3.0.28a.

Thanks

you have to replace, preferably by blastwave, sunfreeware or opensolaris PKG
they use same config files, so you can keep old PKG around "just in case"
normally it does not break, only updates to be compatible with new windows patches etc....

As long as you're not overwriting existing binaries and not bound to the same ports, you can have multiple instances co-existing alongside each other.
Just a thought, zfs supports CIFS. You might want to ditch samba at some point in the future. One less thing to worry about, eh?

Guys,

So as long as i install the new version using different binaries and ports then i can at some point stop the current version and then use the new version ? Clearly i will need to alter any start up scripts whcih starts samba /
