Samba restart when add new user?


When add a user to samba and enable into the sharing, the connections are stopped?. I ask this issue because before doing it the smbstatus look several files opened by usb users. Inmediatly after add the smb user and up into a sharing, the smbstatus look clear. Loose connections?

if you are using the gui samba configuration, I am pretty sure when you change anything and press the apply button, it restarts samba.

On FC5, you can ensure a restart of Samba after a configuration change by executing /etc/rc.d/init.d smb restart in a terminal session. This reference has helped me: http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/sambaserver.shtml

Good luck.

My Linux is FC4 64-bit on a HP dx5150 machine, running Samba. Loading Gnome GUI and the Samba sharing config utility, when enable or disable a user to a sharing, samba restart and the open files by smbusers in this moment are closed. How do it using commands without restart samba?

I don't think you can. If you change your Samba setup, you have to restart Samba (or reboot your server). Configuration changes are saved in files which are only read when Samba starts up - this is why you have to restart Samba after changes.

I've read in the past that Samba refreshes its configuration every 15 minutes. I tried to do a quick search to see if that was true and couldn't find any evidence, so take that with a grain of salt.

I can see when change the samba password to a user, the samba service don't need to restart. For example,
#smbpasswd atlas
The user atlas, already enabled to a sharing, can be changed in password without restart samba; I think is because the smb.conf don't need to be reload for passwd changes.
