Where does your Samba keep its config file? The default config file is
specified at compile time; default is /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf ,
but RedHat compiles theirs to use /etc/samba/smb.conf and SuSE compiles
theirs to use /etc/smb.conf . Make sure you're editing the right file;
run a "locate smb.conf" to make sure there aren't multiple files in
places you didn't expect them. Also make sure that you saved your
changes to the file. Or specify the file to use on the command line,
like "smbd -D -s /somewhere/smb.conf". The way to get Samba to re-read
its config file is to do a "killall -HUP smbd nmbd" and this approach
works with most daemons.
