installing samba 4.1.3


I am trying to install this on my server. I have it all in a folder now, but do not know where to go from here. Is anybody familiar with how to continue with the installation? I am not using a GUI.

I don't think provided us with enough information to help you.

Which distro are you using and how are you trying to install this package? Did you download the Samba source package or an rpm package?

Also: Is there a particular reason you need the latest stable Samba version? Most, if not all distro's come with Samba, be it a lower version, and you can use the package manager to install it without any problems.

I downloaded .tar.gz, and extracted. I am running Ubuntu server. I read that 4 does not require a user account on the linux system to create users for Samba. I might create them after all for a quota though.

Unless you specifically need the new features present I would install the samba version present in the Ubuntu repository if I where you.

If you really need samba 4.1.3 then you need to install it from source. Do a search for install samba 4 from source for some links.

Samba 4 is specifically used for an alternate solution to Microsoft AD. It does not creates user account in your default home location instead it uses backend LDAP database.

Any how I have written articles on the installation of Samba 4 in Red Hat and not Ubuntu. you can have a look for reference.
