        I have recompiled (1.9.17p2) and moved the samba software from a
SparcStation 20 running Solaris 2.4 to a Netra NFS running Solaris 2.5.1 and
are suddenly experiencing a problem where the nmb daemon is quitting with
the following syslog entry:

Oct  6 11:17:41 lindwall inetd[158]: netbios-ns/udp server failing
(looping), service terminated
Oct  6 11:28:59 lindwall inetd[158]: /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd: Child Status

I have done a search of the past digests and have found some earlier
reference to this problem in a message from:

But, unfortunately I don't have the facility to modify & recompile the SUN
Solaris 2.5.1 inetd. I am interested as to why the change in architecture &
OS is suddenly causing this problem.

Has anyone experienced (and fixed?) this problem?
