It is always a good idea to give details about your machine. At leas,
version of centos.

You can try

rpm -qa | grep samba

There are three (at least) samba packages installed on my CentOS 6
machine: samba, samba-common, samba-client. None of them brings samba
command. You can do

rpm -ql samba
rpm -ql samba-common

to see what files packages bring. You can do

rpm -qi samba

to see information about packages. There probably is somewhere README file
(/etc/samba would be wild guess) that will tell which version of SAMBA it

Good luck!
