[Samba] Re: 2 Domains on one server (browse.dat location) (3.0.9)

On a related issue - has anyone gotten the Samba server to run in 2 different domains using the SAME "lock dir" parameter?  My purpose is to have a share in 2 different domains.  It seems to work in limited testing without nmbd or winbind which I can live without if needed.  Config is similar to the one below except both smb.conf's have the same "lock dir" parameter.  Samba 2.2.7a on RH9, planning to try 3.0.10 on Solaris 9.

   Thanks again.

Config was simply

./configure --with-acl-support --disable-static --with-pam --with-msdfs --wi
th-krb5=/usr/local --with-ads=no

I'm using smbd/nmbd -D -s /path/to/config1/2

Config was being picked up as I could see the 2nd domain and it worked 
if it was the only one running.

Having just fired this up at the command line, both daemons seem to
be writing to seperate browse.dat files as you said. Possibly I was blinded
by the obvious earlier and just didn't see the 2nd browse.dat, since the .tdb
files were there.  Both browse.dat files look sane now where as before the one
file didn't.

Can't currently query the domain, I should be able to have a look at this again
Friday PM when I'm back at work. One step forward, two back :)

Good to know someone's done it though.


        log level = 3
        log file = /samba/domain2/var/log.%M[%m][%I]
        lock dir = /samba/domain2/var/locks
        pid directory = /samba/domain2/var/locks
        private dir =  /samba/domain2/var/locks

        ;Basic Server Settings
        netbios name = SAMBA2
        workgroup = DOMAIN2
        bind interfaces only = True
        interfaces = X.Y.Z.4/24   #The first domain listens on also
        socket address = X.Y.Z.4
