Our desktop support person found that, but as I said, it is apparently a
manual install for desktop support. And is it the case that, although
we've shut off the lower level of security on samba on CentOS 6, that it's
still smbv1?

Are there any updates? Is there something in, say, the SCL that might
support smbv2, or is there some way to configure the regular smb to
support v2?
