Distribution-specific Package Installation

Revision as of 14:15, 1 May 2017 by Mmuehlfeld (talk | contribs) (Removed package version info for Debian. We should not mention the versions Distros ship in their packages because nobody keeps this information up2date in the Samba Wiki. E. g., previously the section said Debian ships 4.1, but it's meanwhile 4.5.x.)

Introduction

The following is a distribution-specific list of commands to install Samba.

Note, that the list of commands is neither provided nor actively verified by the Samba team. If you see any missing packages or incorrect package names, please update the command or send the information to the Samba mailing list.



Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS / Scientific Linux

Version 7

# yum install samba

Because of the missing MIT Kerberos support in Samba, you can not use the Samba packages provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as a Samba AD DC. As alternative:

  • build Samba. For details, see Build Samba from Source.
  • use 3rd-party packages with AD support from a trusted source.


Version 6

# yum install samba4

Because of the missing MIT Kerberos support in Samba, you can not use the Samba packages provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as a Samba AD DC. As alternative:

  • build Samba. For details, see Build Samba from Source.
  • use 3rd-party packages with AD support from a trusted source.



Debian

Stretch (testing)

# apt-get install samba


Jessie (stable)

# apt-get install samba



Wheezy (old-stable)

Packages in Wheezy are very outdated, don't use them!

Note: On Wheezy backport Samba 4.1.17 is available: See https://packages.debian.org/wheezy-backports/samba See http://backports.debian.org/Instructions/ for information about how to add backports to your sources.list and how to install packages.

# apt-get install samba


14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS)

Packages in 12.04 are very outdated (3.6.x), don't use them!



FreeBSD

# pkg install net/samba44

Note: If you want to use the idmap_ad Winbind back end (on e.g. an AD Member Server), you have to build the port by hand and select the EXP_MODULES configuration option!
