Hi all, Has anyone had this problem before.......
My problem is that the smbd daemon is not starting up. I have tried using
the log file switch (smbd -d1 -l<filename>) to see if this would throw any
light on this but I only get the following output:
[2000/09/01 11:51:10, 1] smbd/server.c:(641)
smbd version 2.0.7 started.

so it appears as though it thinks that it has started up ok.
My entries in /etc/services:
swat 901/tcp # Samba configuration tool
netbios-ssn 139/tcp # Samba
netbios-ns 137/udp # Samba
My entries in /etc/inetd.conf:
netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /opt/samba/bin/smbd smbd
netbios-ns dgram udp wait root /opt/samba/bin/nmbd nmbd
I have tried several different connotations of netbios_ (underscore) and
netbios- (dash), and think that it is related to this.
I have installed Samba 220.127.116.11 on HP-UX 11.00. Does anyone have this version
running ok that can help.
thanks for any assistance.
