The default samba, 3.6.23-51.

The real issue, which you may have missed, is that this is *heavily* used
by the entire Office. Such an upgrade would require extensive testing
before we can roll it out. By the time we do that, we may have finally
ordered a replacement server for the system, and the new one will be C7.

This isn't a cube farm, but 30 or 50 or 60 people being out of capability
for hours or days is not something we do.
