SMB startup script

Place this script (filename = smb) or one similar to it in /etc/rc.d and create a file in the appropriate runlevel directory call S20smb (and make S20smb a symbolic link to /etc/rc.d/smb)   This script is used by SuSE Linux to start, stop, and restart samba.  Everything in blue I had to modify to point to the new locations of smbd and nmbd when I installed samba-2.0.7.

Or use a file similar to the one below and place it in /etc/rc.d and call it something like smbstart.  Use the command: chmod 700 smbstart to make it executable and place a symbolic link ( ln  -s  /etc/rc.d/smbstart  S20smb ) in the correct run level that starts networking support.  (rc3.d for RedHat and rc2.d for SuSE)

 

# Samba daemon startup script

# filename: /etc/rc.d/smbstart

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D

/usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd -D

echo -n "Starting SaMBa"
