Novice needs help with SAMBA!

Post by Thordur Magnuss » Fri, 02 Jun 1995 04:00:00



Hi there,

I just compiled and installed SAMBA on a RS6000 machine running AIX.

I installed it for use with inetd.

When I test it with:

        /usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient "\\\\machine\\homes"

I get the following error message:

        Session request failed (0,0) with myname=machine destname=machine

I set up the smb.conf as simple as possible:

[homes]
        guest ok = no
        read only = no

Testparm gives ok.

Anyone encountered this problem before?  Any comments?

How about posting the answer, I have the same problem and
have been trying to fix inetd.conf but don't know what is wrong.

I already added the lines to inetd.conf:

netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/samba/smbd smbd
netbios-ns   dgram udp wait    root /usr/local/samba/nmbd nmbd

Do I need to mess with /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 and start up NFS stuff? :
       rpc.portmap, prc.ugidd, rpc.mounted, rpc.nfsd

These are all commented out now (not started).  I was up til 1:30
last night trying to get this to work.  What am I doing wrong?

Hmmm.  I'm not 100% sure, but I think you really need to have tcpd
invoke the smbd and nmbd daemons.  Try:

.. .. .. /usr/sbin/tcpd smbd
.. .. .. /usr/sbin/tcpd nmbd

Naturally, you have to be sure that inetd is running!  Also, I believe
that rpc.portmap (careful! It's called simply 'portmap' on many Linux
distributions) must be started prior to inetd.  You do not need ugidd,
mountd or nfsd unless you're running NFS..

1. Strange smbd behavior: Novice help needed !

Hello,

I installed smbd and nmbd on a NexT running OS3.2 and installed
Lanmanager for DOS on a PC with Intel Etherexpress 16 Net card.
I have couple of strange problems.

1) The hot key (Alt-Ctrl-N) doesn't work.  I have to type "net"
   to get the pop up menu. I can leave with that.

2) The real problem is this:
      I have no trouble getting initial connection
      (net use e: \\servername\username).  But once I disconnect
      that network drive using the pop-up menu I mentioned in (1),
      I cannot reconnect.  When I inspect the processes in the
      server side (using ps aux), I found that two smbd daemons
      are running.  So if I kill the two smbd daemons and bring
      up new smbd daemon, I can reconnect from the DOS side.

   What's the problem here ?

And I don't know how I should set up the client from Windows NT such
as: what should be the gateway address, what is lmhost, what is DHCP,
etc, etc.  Is there any document how to set up windows NT network
to work with samba ?

Thanks in advance for any info.
