Trouble starting samba server
Dec 15th 2012, 17:47

I have an old desktop running OpenSuse 11.4, and I've recently installed samba. I can't seem to get the smb daemon or the samba server to start.


adam@linux-hihn:~> sudo /sbin/service smb stop
root's password:
Shutting down Samba SMB daemon  Warning: daemon not running.                            done
adam@linux-hihn:~> sudo /sbin/service smb start
Starting Samba SMB daemon                                                              done
adam@linux-hihn:~> sudo /sbin/service smb status
Checking for Samba SMB daemon

After reading though some of the information on here I went into the Novell AppArmor control center and set the services to "compain" instead of enforce.

What else is wrong?

I've done some other configuring of Samba in Yast. Do I need to type in the NetBios name?

I was also able to view the status page in SWAT. It says the nmbd is running, but smbd is not running, nor is winbind. I guess pretty much the same information I got from the command line.

Any help is appreciated. I've been tying to get samba working on this box for days now.
