Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

1) sudo lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Release: 10.04

2) sudo apt-cache policy samba
  Installed: 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3
  Candidate: 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3
  Version table:
 *** 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What you expected to happen

I'm working through the 10.04 Server Guide to setup a Samba File Server.

Step 4: Finally, restart the samba services to enable the new configuration: sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart

There is no "samba" command in "/etc/init.d". How does one restart the samba server?

4) What happened instead
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
sudo: /etc/init.d/samba: command not found

Thanks for reporting this bug, and helping make Ubuntu better. The command to restart Samba in Lucid is:

  sudo restart smbd

The Samba init scripts have been migrated to Upstart and the Server Guide will need to be updated.

Sorry HX_unbanned your attachment is to the currently released files. Basically to update to the docs, or create a patch, you need to check out the source from bzr make your change then create a patch and submit it. There are better instructions here:


Thanks again for your submission, if you have any questions please let us know. You can find members of the Doc Team on the mailing list and in #ubuntu-docs on freenode.

 I have added your suggestion to revision 512 in the Maverick branch and revision 510 in the Lucid branch.
