port in use errors on HP-UX 10.20

port in use errors on HP-UX 10.20

Post by Paul Ferri » Wed, 17 Mar 1999 04:00:00

I'm having some problems getting samba to work with HP-UX 10.20.
Seems for some reason the ports 137 and 139 cannot be opened.
The error message hints that they are already in use.

The /etc/services file is stock, and the one I've used dozens of times
on other servers.  the /etc/inetd.conf file is correct as well.
This baffles me.  The HP-UX 10.20 has the latest y2k patches, and
there in would normally lie my hope - except that I just setup a stock
hp735 with stock hp-ux 10.20 - and it's doing now the exact same thing.

Attempts to fire smbd or nmbd with the -D option, and logging set
high give the error messages in the /var directory.  Both are
complaining of the same problem.

My samba is a 1.9.16p11.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. SIGPIPE Errors under HP-UX 10.20

I am using version 1.9.16p10 of samba under HP-UX 10.20.  When I log into
any 4.0 NT workstation that has the user's home directory on a samba share,
I receive a message in the log file indicating "Error writing 101 bytes to
client.  -1.  Exiting".  Upon further investigating and debugging, I find
the program is receiving a SIGPIPE in write_data() of util.c.  This also
occurs at other random periods after login but relatively infrequently.  Is
anyone else experiencing this problem and if so have you come up with a
solution yet?  I've not probed the problem any further at this time.
