[Samba] Samba help?

Hello everyone,

I have just joined this group (discussion board) and would like to know how it works. Can I just put questions out there about my Samba difficulties and hope someone can help me?

Sorry to sound naïve, but I do need help with my Samba config and I have spent months, yes months, trying to get what I am told is a simple thing to work, to work for me and I just can't get it.

I would love it if I could get some help because I sure do need it.

Respectfully waiting for the kindness of strangers......

I appreciate the help you've given but you and I are having fundamentally
different experiences with 3.5. I've tried everything you've suggested, as
well as a bunch of conflicting suggestions from others, with no success.
I've narrowed the problem down to the idmap --> ad settings in smb.conf and
the best information I have right now suggests that something went wonky in
the app sometime after 3.4.8. So right now my immediate objective is to get
3.4.8 running and see if the problem still occurs. A particular help would
be at least getting some error in syslog or the samba logs to find out why
the binary won't start.

Why, it works just fine at least with the packages in CentOS 6.2. I cannot
speak for CentOS 6.3 because it is just out, but I very much doubt it has
broken it.
