openSUSE 42.3 is long since unsupported. We don't even have the 
environment setup to build packages for it anymore.

If you really want to upgrade from source, I can tell you that at some 
point we were able to build 4.11 on openSUSE 42.3 (which may require waf 
patches, IIRC). I don't think 4.15 can build on openSUSE 42.3. One big 
issue you're going to run into is python2/3 upgrade issues. Another 
issue is, since 42.3 is unsupported, you may find it difficult to obtain 
the necessary packages to build samba (there are build dependencies 
which may be deleted from the repositories).
If you really need a relatively stable openSUSE, it will likely be 
better to upgrade to openSUSE 15.2 or 15.3.
Continuing to run 42.3 is an untenable solution.
