Unless you are paying for support from oracle, OEL 6 dies in October and 
Samba 4.2 is very old, so, if there is a problem, you are unlikely to 
get it fixed. If you do have paid Oracle support, I suggest you ask 
them. If you do not, then I suggest you upgrade Oracle, this will get 
you a later version of Samba and if the problem is still there (it could 
have been fixed), then you stand a chance of getting it fixed by Samba. 
Which version to upgrade to will depend on whether you use openldap or 
not. If you do use openldap, then upgrade to version 7, otherwise I 
would go direct to version 8.
