Hi Again,

A bunch of people contacted me telling me to start up a second copy of SAMBA,
but unfortunately, no one seems to know how to do it?

When I try to launch a second copy of smb and nmb with pointers to the new
smb.conf file, I get:

>[2002/08/27 18:37:20, 0] lib/pidfile.c:pidfile_create(86)
>  ERROR: nmbd is already running. File /usr/local/samba/var/locks/nmbd.pid exist
>s and process id 39187 is running.
>[2002/08/27 18:41:14, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:sig_term(65)
>  Got SIGTERM: going down...

And I can't see any way to tell nmb to place the second .pid file elsewhere.

Do I need to recompile a second copy of samba, using /usr/local/samba2 as
the directory or something?
