I have had a samba 2.2.8a running for a while on a suse box.
Now recently I have had some strange problems.
"ps -A | grep nmb" Shows nothing.
But, "lsof | grep mbd" shows me smbd and nmbd are running.
The smbd.pid and nmbd.pib are in /usr/var/locks/.
Now, why out of the blue would "ps -A" not show the processes?
I upgraded samba to 2.2.8a a while ago, after the upgrade I started smbd
and nmbd like this:
smbd -l /var/log/samba
nmbd -l /var/log/samba
then, "ps -A" showed the pid's for the processes no problem just as
But something strange has happened, I don't understand why its all the
sudden not displaying the pid for smbd and nmbd?
Although samba services are running ok, it appears to be working even
though I cannot see the PID through ps.
