> I've got a client asking if Samba Internet Services 3.5 is supported
under REHL 5.

Define "supported".  If you mean 24/7 tiered escalation included with
your RHEL subscription - then no.

I have filed two bug reports about running the latest Sernet Samba on
RHEL 5 fully patched


and they've been outstanding for months now, and the servers have
crashed at least once in the meantime.  I also have to go in
occasionally and kill zombie processes that peg a processor.  So if you
need super-ultra-resilient samba, don't use the sernet 3.5 strain.

I got forced into it because Red Hat didn't have a Samba version
compatible with Server 2008 when I had to build.
