[Samba] Running Samba 2.2.3a under RedHat 7.2

I think this error happens when you compile 2.2.3 without passing the path things to ./configure.  Are you using the smb in /etc/init.d/ to start it?  I bet if you download the redhat binary rpm and install it, or pass the correct paths to configure, it will work fine.  I believe redhat stored things differently than a base compile of samba.

Hi all,

i am trying to run Samba 2.2.3a under a RedHat 7.2 i386 machine. After i compiled and installed the packages, i made a smb.conf up. Just some standard stuff nothing special. Now, when i start smbd and then check it with smbstatus it gives me this error :

Samba version 2.2.3a
Service      uid      gid      pid     machine

tdb((null)): tdb_open_ex: could not open file /var/cache/samba/brlock.tdb: No such file or directory Failed to open byte range locking database
tdb((null)): tdb_open_ex: could not open file /var/cache/samba/locking.tdb: No such file or directory
ERROR: Failed to initialise locking database
Can't initialise locking module - exiting

i checked if a file locking.tdb and brlock.tdb exits on my system, but there nowhere to be found.
