access Samba server: control violation /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start failed

Mandrake Linux 9.2
Samba server

Restarting the Samba server gives following error message:

access control violation : /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start failed

Any idea?

Welcome to LQ!

have you checked you log files?
in /var/log you have tons of information, generally split up in files named after the services. general notices are in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages
you can use tail to only get a certain amount of lines or use the -f flag to view the files including any updates (this means you can view all updates)

view last 10 lines or someting of /var/log/syslog
tail /var/log/syslog

view last 50 lines of /var/log/syslog
tail -50 /var/log/syslog

view last 10 lines and show any file updates
tail -f /var/log/syslog
