First, I installed the RedHat 7.2 rpm, I did not compile this version of
SWAT or SAMBA. Both wer installed as part of the RPM.
Checkeing the SAMBA 2.2.3a RPM with Query, it shows SWAT loaded as
/usr/sbin/swat. Checking the /etc/xinet.d/swat file, it is looking for
SWAT there. So that seems correct. I did notice "disable=yes" so I
changed that to "disable=no" This however is due to my deleting and
then reinstalling the RPM last night. Still the same issue. I can
start smb from command line, it runs but SWAT reports it not running.
SWAT does however see the nmb running. Very odd.
I have this exact same rpm version installed on my server and on my
workstation. Server sees everything correctly and is fully operational.
The workstation has the VMware install however.
NOTE: in the previous note I mentioned that there were 2 versions of smb
loaded on the system. This is not correct. There was only the one
version. It is /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb smbd is in /usr/sbin
I see too that there is no inetd.conf file as this system is using
xinetd. Nothing in those files pointing to anything swat related.
Under the /etc/vmware directory there is a seperate smb.conf file but it
has lines stating that other SAMBA servers can run without problems as
the vmware version is bound to a NAT port of 192.168.67.1 my versions I
have added are on a real network at 192.168.1.x
I suppose I could try removing vmware for now. If all this works out I
may not need it anyway. Perhaps there needs to be something written on
how to add a samba server to a system with VMware already installed?
This is confusing for me being new at all this.
By the way, as I compiled vmware, how do I get rid of it now?
