Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-config-samba

Apparently after you make a change in the gui of system-config-samba, scs attempts to restart samba using "/etc/init.d/samba". From what I know, the correct way to restart samba is with sudo service smbd restart or sudo restart smbd
sudo /etc/init.d/samba definitely doesn't work.

This shows up with Lucid 10.04 and system-config-samba version 1.2.63-0Ubuntu4

Larry,

Thanks for filing this. I was looking through the bugs in here today and noticed that this one has been fixed by revision 1.2.63, which is the current version in precise (12.04). I did not back track and figure out where this was fixed. The latest code calls service, not the init.d script directly.

Larry, I was able to repro this today, so despite what I saw in the code, there is another hook that does call like you said, even in the latest version:
