samba client install

Hi All,

I have downloaded a version of samba client from samba.org for 11.23 server. But the downloaded file is in tar.gz format.

I do not find any .depot file inside it. So, how can I install it on the server?
Any special procedure for it?

Thanks

Re: samba client install

first
#gunzip ur_file.tar.gz
#tar xvf ur_file.tar

then see the content you would be having something which would look like a depot :)

Shalom,

The best place to get a working samba version is: http://software.hp.com search for CIFS/9000

Download the client. Use swinstall to do the install.

It requires a reboot.

HP actually tested the apps on the software site and you will save yourself a lot of pain and hard work going that route.

@SEP

Re: samba client install

from your tar file did u try to have a look over
/docs/INSTALL.txt

and read this file and I suppose you may have to run "installbin.sh".

Right, this seems to be a source tarball and you'll have to build it.

Re: samba client install

Hello,

First of all,

>I have downloaded a version of samba client

What you have downloaded is the server, SAMBA server.

The binary depot for HP-UX can be downloaded from:

http://samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/hp/samba-3.0.23a/

Be aware of the dependencies! You must install those in order to have a working product.

Do you need to run a SAMBA server on your HP-UX server (Do you export file systems using SAMBA)?

As a client, you can use HP's implementation, CIFS which is available from:

https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=B8724AA
