Please help!! Samba on Solaris 8 problem

Please help!! Samba on Solaris 8 problem

Post by jsherman.. » Thu, 05 Oct 2000 04:00:00

Hoping someone out there can lend a hand...  I've installed
a pre-built Samba 2.0.5a for Solaris 8.  smbd won't seem to fire
up.  The inetd and services entries are there, all the executables
seem to be in place.

When I try to run smbclient -L mercury3 (hostname,)I get:

session request to MERCURY3 failed
session request to *SMBSERVER failed

When I just try running smbd manually, the following gets logged:

[2000/10/04 07:38:54, 1] smbd/files.c:file_init(216)
  file_init: Information only: requested 10000 open files, 1014 are
[2000/10/04 07:38:54, 0] locking/shmem_sysv.c:sysv_shm_open(597)
  ERROR: root did not create the semaphore
[2000/10/04 07:38:54, 0] locking/locking.c:locking_init(174)
  ERROR: Failed to initialise share modes

Any idea where to start?  Thanks very much for any help.

1. PLEASE PLEASE HELP Major problem with my SCSI & Redhat 5.0 PLEASE Help

Everything ran WONDERFUL for about 4 months this machine ran several
servers it is a UDB w/ 340mb SCSI (SLOW 5mb) half inch internal hard
drive.  32 megs of true parity ram, Red hat 5.0 I get the following

NCR53-810-0: ERROR (0:48) (0-20-0) (8/33) * scripth (868:18000400).
NCR53-810-0: Script cmd = 888030000

occur when doing file writing, when i try to tar something for example
