samba won't start at boot

samba won't start at boot

Post by Gerald Pollac » Sun, 01 Aug 1999 04:00:00



I'm using samba (2.04b) for file sharing between my linux system (RH
5.2, 2.2.2) and a Windows95 VMware guest. I'm unable to get samba to
start at boot. The following error appears in /var/log/samba/log.smb:

[1999/07/30 22:25:18, 0] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_in(709)
  bind failed on port 139 socket_addr=192.168.215.1 (Cannot assign
requested address)

If I start samba after booting, everything works fine. It occured to me
that perhaps some other service, required by samba, was being started
only after samba during the boot sequence, but this doesn't appear to be
the case; I boot to runlevel 3, and the only entry in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d
with a higher number than the link to /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb is the link
to rc.local. I've tried starting samba as the last statement in
rc.local, but I still have the same problem.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

1. samba won't start at boot

I'm using samba (2.04b) for file sharing between my
linux system (RH 5.2, 2.2.2) and a Windows95 VMware
guest. I'm unable to get samba to start at boot. The
following error appears in /var/log/samba/log.smb:

 Cannot assign requested address)

The address in question belongs to the linux host.

If I start samba after booting, everything works fine.
I considered the possibility that some other service,
required by samba, was being started only after samba
during the boot sequence, but this doesn't appear to be
the case; I boot to runlevel 3, and the only entry in
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d with a higher number than the link to
/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb is the link to rc.local. I've
also tried starting samba as the last statement in
