    During upgrade to 13.04, was asked what to do about Samba config file

    During my upgrade, a message from "debconf" popped up, in regards to "samba server and utilities" asking what I wanted to do about conflicts with my smb.cnf file. Among the options were keeping the existing file and a 3-way merge. I tried the 3-way merge which failed, and so I selected to keep the existing file.

    I'm something of a n00b still, but I *think* samba is kind of important, because the machine is on a mixed-OS network and does lots of interacting with other machines. I seem to remember getting everything working in 12.10 was not without difficulties.

    I'm wondering if I need to do anything or leave as is, assuming I don't discover something has been broken in the upgrade process!

    you still can check its configuration, from a terminal, run:

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure samba

    .... and try some exchange on the network to know if its working as expected

    If your network shares still work fine I wouldn't worry about it. During updates the installer ofter asks techno-gibberish questions, just select to "keep existing ..."
