I did in, also on a Solaris 2.6 system, by, after building and testing on
a test machine, I installed it over the running samba deamons (they get
moved to .old by the installer) and then cycling the server.  Total down
time for Samba was .5 sec.

One thing, make SURE you have tested both the binaries (don't rebuild
between test and production) and the config, take the production config
and change only the netbios name to test with.  You may find some
addations you need, or want, to make to the config when you put 2.0.7 in.
