Hi All,
Used pware packaged version from http://pware.hvcc.edu/ with all
appropriate pware61 filesets.

nmbd process wouldn't start and received the following error in
the /var/log/samba/log.nmbd.

[2011/08/02 12:56:49.162945,  0] lib/util_sock.c:875(open_socket_in)
  bind failed on port 137 socket_addr =
  Error = The socket name is not available on this system.
[2011/08/02 12:56:49.163276,  0] nmbd/nmbd_subnetdb.c:118(make_subnet)
    Failed to open nmb bcast socket on interface for port
137.  Error was The socket name is not available on this system.

Uninstalled with all pware61 filesets, then installed with
all required pware53 filesets and no problem starting nmbd.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
