SAMBA+ subscription keys can be purchased at https://shop.samba.plus.
To gain access to the software packages, please follow these steps:
Access to the SerNet download server:
Next, click on the desired software packages on this page. The SerNet download server will ask you to enter a username and a password. The username is your subscription key (starting with SMB...) and the password is always sambaplus (So the access secret is not the password but the subscription key.)
Please find additional information at https://samba.plus/samba-howto/purchase-samba.
The following form of URLs can be used to automatically retrieve packages from our repositories with package managers such as apt, yum or zypper. Direct download links to the packages are also available. The packages are signed with SerNet's gpg build key. See below for details.
If you need SAMBA+ for any other operating system or architecture, please use the following link to contact us: https://shop.samba.plus/contact.
The repository files can be copied to the following locations depending on the installer used:
|path for repo-file
Note that the repository files are templates: In the URLs inside the repository files, you need to replace KEY:PASSWORD with your corresponding subscription key and password ”sambaplus”. Newer apt versions recommend to use the /etc/apt/auth.conf file to store the login information instead of the sources.list. For the SAMBA+ repository the following line would be needed: “machine download.sernet.de/subscriptions/samba/ login KEY password sambaplus”.
More information on installing, running and upgrading SAMBA+ can be found in the SAMBA+ HowTo collection.
