Samba problems under QNX 4.24

I have installed Samba as directed by the QNX Developers Network, but
everytime I try to execute the smbd as a daemon or on its own, it kills
itself off.

I followed the instructions letter by letter, is there anything in
particular that someone had to do to get it running? Or is there a site
to look at for suggestions.

It’s hard to say without more context. Make sure you’re running the QNX4
version and not the QNX6 one. The QNX4 version is at quics.qnx.com:

/usr/free/qnx4/tcpip/utils/samba-qnxbin-2.0.7.tgz
/usr/free/qnx4/tcpip/utils/samba-qnxbin-2.0.7.tgz.readme

Good luck.

Make sure you have an entry in the /etc/hosts file for this node.

Look at log files:
/usr/local/samba/var/log.smb
/usr/local/samba/var/log.nmb

I found out the problem the first one was that the smb.conf was supposed
to be in the /usr/local/samba/lib unless otherwise specified, the
default I am used it is that the file is in /etc.

The second part to the problem was that the smb.conf had to have the IP
address for the node in the script. So the smb.conf had to have the line
‘socket address = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx’ with my nodes IP in the [global]
section.


I hope this helps someone else with the same problem. The only minor
thing that troubles me is that the smbd and the nmbd display running
then done, but I know they are working because they become daemon
processes after inspecting what is being executed on my node.
