SWAT (Samba) "how to install" question

Red Hat 8 and Im missing swat from my Samba config.

I type in $ rpm -qa | grep samba and get everything but swat.....

i guess it isnt installed, Ive downloaded the RPM for it ,(same version).

My question is: where do I install it to and how do I configure it all to intergrate with my existing Samba distro?

thanks for your help...

You only need swat to configure samba it offers no more inhancement. To install it:
rpm -ivh /path/to/samba-swat-xxxxxx.rpm

Then run "ntsysv" and make sure swat is enabled to run. Then start it using:
service swat restart
