Updating Samba on CentOS 5

wrote by Rafael Marangoni, from Servidor Linux team.

This article explains howto update the Samba packages on CentOS 5 to version 3.5.

First, we need to add a new repository:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

wget http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/3.5/centos/5/sernet-samba.repo

Then, update samba:

yum update samba

Probably, you will need winbind too:

yum install samba3-winbind samba3-utils

Check the rpm version:

rpm -qa | grep samba

Restarting Samba:

/etc/init.d/smb restart

  1. Nice clear instructions – after upgrade there is no trust relationship between my workstations and the PDC. Cannot rejoin the domain. Also where is Swat? Can’t find a package suitable for samba3-3.5.12-44 on el5
