> I did try 'startproc'ing multiple copies of smbd and nmbd however the
> pids are written to files and the option to set a pid name in startproc
> seems to have no affect on the smbd.pid name created for smbd. Thus only one
> copy is alive. Multiple processes are created and although thwy have separate
> IP addresses (on eth aliases), the process errors. (as shown in log.smb)
> include /dir/workgroup.%L where
> workgroup.rifrafserver contains workgroup = RIFRAF
> doesn't work!! Nice try there. It defaults to WORKGROUP and refuses to change.
> A proposal.
> a modification to samba/smb to allow either
> workgroup = ADMIN. RIFRAF, WHATEVER ... ie multiple names
> smbd -w workgroupnameoption -j /path/pid_file_name -u IPaddressOrInterface
> Only a late night thought. Should we send it to samba.org??!!
