Obnoxious, is when someone thinks there is a requirement to give away
binary rpms to a non-paying customer!!

Please get your facts straight!!

Having said that, if you do not need Samba AD support there are newer samba
rpms available for FREE with Centos. if you need something newer than
4.2.10 on c-6 or 4.4.4 on c-7 or you need Samba AD support, I would suggest you
download the src tarball from https://download.samba.org/pub/samba/stable/samba-4.6.6.tar.gz
and build it yourself. It is trivial to build provided you follow the
instructions @ https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Build_Samba_from_Source.

https://wiki.samba.org provides a wealth of information for configuring samba 4

In addition, if you have problems the people on the samba mailing
go out of their way to help troubleshoot problems.
