I am using Amazon Linux on AWS and wish to install the CLI application of samba-tool. On Linux distributions including Ubuntu, this is included by default with installing samba, but does not appear to be available after running yum install samba. It also does not exist in the location /usr/local/samba/bin/samba-tool referenced in the documentation.

How do I install samba-tool on Amazon Linux?

You'll need to compile Samba from source at this time to access the samba-tool binary, the Centos8 and Fedora build specs are pretty similar to what you need on Amazon Linux 2.
