Thank you. 

And from what I have read. When the next "newer" version is released,
stop samba services (all of them) and run the script and the script will
replace the previously installed version by installing the newer version
into the same location?

We users become dependent on scripts. And we users need the learn independence. I have been learning what scripts do and how scripts do what they do. I was wanting to install 4.3.1 on Debian8 and see if I encountered bug #11573. (Had a CentOS 7 VM that will not domain provision due to bug #11573.) This holiday experiment idea will now end. Waiting until after v4.3.2 is released. Patience is a good thing. Thanks for suggestions and help, both Louis and Rowland.
