Hi, Geza and Jaimie,
Thanks for the replies. I did "ps auxwww | grep smb",
and I get:
root 1966 0.0 0.2 2568 1192 ? S
Mar22 0:00 /usr/bin/vmware-nmbd -D -l /dev/null -s
root 1976 0.0 0.2 3568 1376 ? S
Mar22 0:00 /usr/bin/vmware-smbd -D -l /dev/null -s
root 2987 0.0 0.1 3572 628 pts/2 S
16:46 0:00 grep smb
It appears that the VMware-installed Samba is running.
Is this correct? I wasn't aware that I had installed
Samba with VMware. I just chose all of the default
options when I installed VMware. When I do "smbd -V",
This is not the "regular" Smaba version which I
installed after installing VMware. That version was
3.0.2a. I replaced /etc/vmware/vmnet1/smb/smb.conf
with an smb.conf with my Linux host shares. The Linux
host still doesn't show up on the Windows XP guest.
And I still can't run smbclient on the Linux host.
"smbclient -L localhost" gives:
added interface ip=192.168.230.17
added interface ip=172.16.105.1 bcast=172.16.105.255
added interface ip=172.16.214.1 bcast=172.16.214.255
error connecting to 127.0.0.1:139 (Connection refused)
Error connecting to 127.0.0.1 (Connection refused)
Connection to localhost failed
Is there a way to delete the Samba 3.0.2a
installation that I put on after I installed VMware?
I figure if I can at least know which Samba I'm
running, I can follow the appropriate documentation on
the VMware site. Thanks,
