Bug Description

Binary package hint: samba

Related to changes from Bug #203169; filing as a new bug because that one is getting too big for its own good.

Patch attached, to provide a status action for nmbd and smbd in /etc/init.d/samba, and winbindd in /etc/init.d/winbind.

Patch updated to account for:
 * nmbd disabled
 * running from inetd

Patch updated to return 4 (program or service status is unknown), per if [ nmbd is disabled and smbd is running from inetd ].


Dustin Kirkland  (kirkland) wrote :

Patch updated, merging the last two. We should test for nmbd disabled before checking it's status, then test for running from inetd before checking smbd's status, and then return 4 if nmbd is disabled and smbd is running from inetd.

Hi Dustin,

Can you rediff this against samba-3.2?

This bug was fixed in the package samba - 2:3.2.0-4ubuntu2

samba (2:3.2.0-4ubuntu2) intrepid; urgency=low

  * debian/control: Depend on lsb-base >= 3.2-14, which has the
    status_of_proc() function.
  * debian/samba.init: Replace the previous 'status' gathering mechanism with
    the common one now provided by status_of_proc() (LP: #247087).
  * debian/winbind.init: Add a pid variable and a 'status' action.
