Mine is not a server, but it is operational in a private network. Just
today (about and hour ago) did the upgrade, However, I was at latest 4.2
update and don't run Samba. Worked like a charm.

I'm using it now for this and other activities.

My only extra repo item is an rpmforge for liblame. All else is CentOS
base... um I do have an mplayer installed to, almost forgot that.

I hope you have good luck with it. I also hope that you find some
valuable clues or lessons that help in the future.

If there is anything I can do (check my logs, ID diffs in how we did
it, ...) that might help your investigation, let me know.
