We have had SAMBA running successfully at work here for a while, it's on a
Sun Sparc Solaris 2.6. The version of samba is 2.0.0.

Unfortunately our sysadmin has left the company, and I have to try and fix a
problem with Samba. When I try and start samba, "nmbd" starts ok, but "smbd"
doesn't start.
When I check the log files, I get these errors:
[2001/09/24 13:50:41, 1] smbd/files.c:file_init(219)
  file_init: Information only: requested 10000 open files, 1014 are
[2001/09/24 13:50:41, 0] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_in(663)
  bind failed on port 139 socket_addr=192.168.XXX.YYY (Address already in

I've replaced our IP address with XXX and YYY.

Can anyone please help me with this, or at least point me in the right
direction of where to start!!

Much appreciated. Thanks
