You would have to define a new Solaris 10 service for the new samba.  I
don't know how to do this myself-  the solaris documentation should say how,
but it always looked pretty complicated to me.  You have to define the

You are probably better off creating an /etc/init.d/samba script and sym
linking it to the appropriate rc.d directions-  the same way you would have
done it in Solaris 9 or earlier.   "svcs -a" will list it as a legacy
service.  This is what I did.

You will need to use "svcadm" to disable the bundled samba version.

I believe Solaris Express , just released, has samba 3.4.x  or 3.5.x  higher

Hi All,

I have a problem with upgrade samba on Solaris 10 (x86). The current version
is 3.0.25b (distributed with Solaris 10). I am trying to upgrade version to
3.4.5. I compiled samba from sources, has not any problem with make and
installation. Now I have 2 different versions and when I am running "svcadm
enable samba" I am receiving old version.
The old version installed under: /usr/sfw/sbin, new one under /usr/sbin...

# /usr/sfw/sbin/smbd -V
Version 3.0.25a
# /usr/sbin/smbd -V
Version 3.4.5
# ps -ef | grep smbd
    root  7531  7305   0 17:55:32 pts/1       0:00 grep smbd
    root  6981  6979   0 15:19:58 ?           0:00 /usr/sfw/sbin/smbd -D
    root  6979     1   0 15:19:58 ?           0:00 /usr/sfw/sbin/smbd -D

Can you, please help me here?

Thanks a lot,
