AFAIK most packages are installed as default to the /opt/samba location. If he had built
from source the 2.0.7 install would have renamed the binary files to .old. Source-built installs
are as default put in /usr/local/samba
There might be several reasons for not showing the correct version:.
- You have installed the package/source-install to another location which the PATH cannot
- You are still running the old SWAT
- You have not shutdown all the instanses of the old samba (smbd/nmbd).
- you are using an old smb.conf file with version-option set to the old version
To check if you really have the right binaries go to the location you installed you binaries (ie
/opt/samba/bin, /usr/local/samba/bin) and do a "./smbd -V". Remember the puncation
before the "/" or you might be overridden by the PATH setting.
Check if your settings are correct in the /etc/inetd.conf or /etc/rc type files. If they are correct i
reccomend a reboot of the server. (Fix the settings if not) That way you will be sure that
none of the old processes are still running and you get a fresh start. SWAT are supposed to
be able to kill all instanses of the nmbd and smbd, but I am not sure what will happen if you
are running two samba versions at the same time.
