Welcome to

This site is dedicated to Samba on Enterprise Linux.

Samba Packages


Since late 2003 SerNet provides Samba packages for enterprise ready Linux distributions, e.g. Red Hat Enterprise Server and Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Server, available on SerNet's download server.

Several hundred downloads a week of those packages for each distribution show the importance of this offering (also proven by Google's page rank for this server: Look for "" here or here).

SerNet also considers Debian Linux to be an Enterprise Linux because of its remarkable upgrade capabilities and the long lasting life cycle of each distribution. (Above all it is always great to have a free choice :-)

Feel free to send us your comments and have fun!



Heinlein Support does provide a Samba4 training now. This training is based on a collaboration with SerNet and covers Samba4 as an Active Directory Domain Controller.
