Hi Andrew,
Thanks much for the message.

As I am using FreeBSD 12, that´s the latest SAMBA version available via PKG support, although I know it's possible to compile the ver 4.10
Would you mind let me know where to get its Source code and possibly some DOC material for FreeBSD compiling?
I will definitively give it a try.

Thanks Once again!!! Much appreciated!

No, you need to upgrade to Samba 4.10 to get Python 3.x support.

This, along with many other good reasons, is why we put so much effort into Python 3.x support, and we would love to see it being used.
