Yes, very true!

I really have "upgrading fatigue", this is my tenths bloody odd machine I am moving from 6.x to 7.x (all of those quite complicated servers) - but it is my first samba server. All the samba servers are internal servers unreachable from the outside, so loosing the updates of the OS was my least concern. 

I briefly researched samba a while back and did not expect a few minor version number changes make such a big difference. I also "expected" to have a variety of choices of Samba (as this had been the case for so many years) - e.g. older versions.

One of the biggest issues I have faced doing my upgrades is not only the OS upgrade but nearly EVERY software package the OLD servers were using were upgraded, too, even if the package numbers did not differ that much - this was a major, major hassle especially making them stick with systemd and the libraries required to run it.

I am so over this.
It would have been nice to have an OLD version of Samba for CentOS 7.X - then to change this in a 1/2 year time once I upgraded the rest of the servers - JUST saying!

thanks for the elaborate reading suggestions!!!!!
