We are having problems getting Samba to run on our QNX4 server.
We are currently running NFS to access QNX files from Windoz… We would also
like to offer access thru Samba.
We downloaded ‘samba-qnxbin-2.0.7.tgz’ from the QNX web site, unpacked it
and ran ‘make install’.
We created the simple ‘pcguest’ smb.conf in the /usr/local/samba/lib
We added the ‘pcguest’ entry in the /etc/passwd file.
We verified that /etc/services has the ‘netbios’ lines.
So far, so good.
When we start ‘smbd’ from the command line (logged in as root), smbd aborts
and we get the following entries in the ‘log.smb’ file.

smbd version 2.0.7 started.

ERROR: Samba cannot create a SAM SID.
We are running QNX4.25I and Socket 4.24A.
Does anyone know what the error message ‘Samba cannot create a SAM SID’
Any suggestion what the problem might be and how ro correct it?
