How do I install Samba on DS25 VMS8.3

What version do I need?
Where do I get it and patches?
Complete instructions for installation
I have been unable to get it to work.
(my experience with Samba is on HPUX and Linix)

Everything I find seems to go back to HPUX

The supported SAMBA on VMS is known as CIFS.

This link from OpenVMS.org may help:

Michael,

Yes, the naming can be a source of confusion.

The OpenVMS port of SAMBA is indeed referred to as the "Common Internet File System", more simply by its initials "CIFS".

The most recent article on the subject is entitled "Launch of HP OpenVMS CIFS v1.2 Enabling Simplified Installation", available on OpenVMS.org at http://www.openvms.org/stories.php?story=10/06/22/2518650 .

That article includes a link to the HP www site giving all of the details.

Re: How do I install Samba on DS25 VMS8.3

there are many ways to configure this CIFS version but the easiest way is the new config procedure
@samba$root:[bin]samba$config.
This will do it all including a domain join.
