I have just upgraded a RedHat 6.2 box from Samba 2.0.10 to Samba 2.2.5
in one of our elementary school buildings because we now have some w2k
boxes that must log to the domain. I'm now getting an error on
initializing the locking modules when I run smbstatus. I did the upgrade
remotely so I don't know yet whether workstations work properly with the

[root at fvserver samba]# smbstatus

Samba version 2.2.5
Service      uid      gid      pid     machine

Failed to open byte range locking database
ERROR: Failed to initialise locking database
Can't initialise locking module - exiting

Does anyone know what causes this and how to correct it?
