How to add script on mandriva to restart samba when boot up?
 
How to add script on mandriva to restart samba when boot up?

I was wondering how do I make a bash script that automatically restarts samba after all the services are running? The reason I ask is because mandriva 2010.2 has a bug where smb is conflicting with nmbd and if I restart smb at boot it fixes the problem. So I just need it where the system automatically restarts smb. Thank you.

you need to go into /etc/rcX.d and look for samba service. that should be something like this S<number>samba (this is a symbolic link). You can make a copy of it as S99samba2 or whatever and it will try to start smbd again.

There's no /etc/rcX.d file.

you need to replace X with a number, which is your actual runlevel. it is usually 2 or 3, but I'm not sure.

Normally a major service like that would be defined in /etc/init.d & linked from the relevant startup dir eg /etc/rc3.d

I found S91smb@
is this the one you mention.

This is not working. Ive tried to copy and rename S91smb to S91smb2
but nothings happen.

would be better to try S99smb2 and also would be nice to look into the log files.
