Hi All,

First time poster. Not a unix pro.

We had samba client installed (v. 3.6)  and working to run a single file print command.

smbclient --debuglevel=1 --log-basename=/mnt/autofs/logs/print/  -U bbldtl\\adminuser //$3/$2  'obscured-password'  --command "print $1" | tee -a /mnt/autofs/logs/print/print.log

It would output

[2019/07/04 04:27:36,  0] libsmb/clidfs.c:232(do_connect)
  Domain=[BBLDTL] OS=[Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 9600] Server=[Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 6.3]
[2019/07/04 04:27:36,  1] client/client.c:1883(do_put)
  putting file /mnt/autofs/output/bin/Default/j8989s2bdefault.ps as j8989s2bdefault.ps-11430 (546.7 kb/s) (average 546.7 kb/s)

Now after upgrade of our Linux environment
"redhatVersion": "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.7 (Maipo)",
            "tomcatVersion": "7.0.93",
and Samba to 4.9.1
it now only logs

            Unable to initialize messaging context

Any pointers on where / how to investigate this?
