I want to configure samba on my Red Hat 7.3 box. However, when I went to edit the /etc/smb.conf file it was not there. But, when I ran the samba deamon and added a username and password everthing worked.
So, where is my smb.conf file? I thought the deamon would not run without it.

If you're doing that as non root you can encounter a lot of error messages om your screen, making ik hard to see the file so you could add 2>/dev/null, that sends all the errors to /dev/null.
find / -name smb.conf 2>/dev/null
