[Samba] SMB service not starting automatically

This would depend on what OS you run.  For Solaris, I create an smb script 
in /etc/init.d, then link to this from /etc/rc2.d.  I also create a kill 
link in /etc/rc0.d:

# ln -s /etc/init.d/smb /etc/rc0.d/K90smb
# ln -s /etc/init.d/smb /etc/rc2.d/S90smb
# more /etc/init.d/smb

case "$1" in
         /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D
         /usr/local/samba/sbin/nmbd -D
         /usr/bin/pkill -x -u 0 smbd
         /usr/bin/pkill -x -u 0 nmbd
         echo "Usage: smb {start|stop}"
exit 0
