SMB.CONF missing?
 
Where is it? I lost mine smb.conf or someone move it? I am using Red Hat 7.2 and I can't locate my samba configuration file, Did they rename it, or move it?
Some one help me find it!
and when I find it I am going to edit the damn thing!
HELP.:confused:

Try looking in that dir for smb.conf-sample or similar. try find / | grep smb or something. It's there, somewhere :). If you get really lost, I'll post mine or send it to you.

missing smb.conf
 
I did try to find it using grep and find and nothing, I even look for it using the graphical interface and no luck, I need to know if they rename it or move it?
btw, thanks for your quick response!

Try this :
Code:

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not many any basic syntactic errors.

but first check /etc/samba/smb.conf

Iknowit101 05-30-2002 06:57 PM

lackluster, Thanks for posting your file, Are you using RH 7.2?
If you are where is located?

Noerr, I did look in /etc/samba/ but is not there, the box is running fine, so I am sure the file is there, in fact this is the box I am using right now, I just need to make some changes. I searched the *.conf files and the is a bunch of them but no smb.conf and it seems like there is no Samba directory either.
where did it go?
help.

sewer_monkey 05-31-2002 09:49 AM

If you installed SAMBA from a RedHat-compatible RPM, then the config file should be /etc/samba/smb.conf by default. If you installed SAMBA from source, or using a non-RedHat optimized package, then your config file can be anywhere. :) Try using the find command or the locate command to find it.

This is just more proof that Linux needs to be standardized. The last thing you want as a sysadmin is looking for config files. Sounds ridiculous.

lackluster 05-31-2002 11:03 AM

Iknowit101,

No, I'm using slackware 8 (just like the Distribution says ;))

Noerr 05-31-2002 02:46 PM

you may solve your problem compiling new samba, and that way you'll be sure where is it going to be.
btw you probably haven't got new version yet 2.2.4 => so go for it

Iknowit101 06-03-2002 02:29 PM

missing smb.conf
 
That is exactly what I am going to do!
Thanx to all for your input.
