It's a bit an old version of samba 2.0.7. The latest version is 2.2.2 and you cuold get it from as source code/tarball or from sunfreeware as precompiled version for intel/sparc solaris 2.5/7-8 systems.

just uncompress this file and add it by
pkgadd -d samba-file

I think it's better when you'll install a precompiled version of samba for soalris/intel 8.
The file calls


You can get it from every solaris resouce site, because this is the "official" desciption for it.

( )

unpack it

gunzip -d samba-2.2.2-sol8-intel-local.gz

install it

pkgadd -d samba-2.2.2-sol8-intel-local

( samba 222 is finally insatleld in usr/local/samba. That's it )

Now you can configure your samba server.
