Run this:

smbd -V

This assumes the samba daemon is in your path.

for redhat / fedora / centos or generally any rpm based distro

rpm -q samba
or: rpm -qa |grep samba

or for debian / ubuntu based

apt-cache show samba

The answer I gave was not specific to any version of Linux, or Unix, for that matter, however I received no points, and it supplies the answer to which you were seeking. I don't understand? Not even an assist?
