Updating the Samba files

After you've installed the Centrify adbindproxy package, you might need to update your version of Samba. When you update the Samba files, the update will replace smb.conf and also restart Samba with its own startup script instead of the adbindd script.

Before you update your version of Samba, it's a good practice to make a backup copy of your smb.conf file.

After you update your version of Samba, perform the following tasks so that you can keep the Centrify adbindproxy package working.

To keep the Centrify adbindproxy package working after updating Samba:

  • Do one of the following:
    • Run adbindproxy.pl to reconfigure the centrifydc-samba service (Recommended)

      After adbindproxy.pl finishes the setup, you may want to add back the customized settings from the smb.conf backup to the new smb.conf file. Restart the centrifydc-samba service after the change. Note that the commands to restart the service are different on different platforms.

    • Manually replace the smb.conf with the backup.

      After replacing the smb.conf file, restart the centrifydc-samba service. Note that the commands to restart the service are different on different platforms.

      This method may not work because the Samba upgrade may affect the configurations of the centrifydc-samba service and the Samba service itself.
