    Install Samba 3.0.34 from Binary

    Im trying to install Samba 3.0.34 onto my Ubuntu 9.04 system from a binary package I've downloaded. i am using this version because the version that comes with Ubuntu, 3.3.2, from what i have read will not integrate with Likewise correctly for Active directory authentication. i download the source conigure it complie then install. but when i try to confirm the install by running smbd -V to check the version it says that it is not installed and to use the apt-get command to install it. it appears that the samba files are in the /usr/local directory. can anyone help me out.

    I'm in the exact same boat, I have noticed that samba has in fact installed the command in /etc/init.d to start the services but when attempting to start them it returns nothing.

    Same problem if I go to /usr/local/sbin/smbd or /usr/local/sbin/nmbd The commands work but nothing starts or anything.

    Anyone have an ideas, if you need more info I will gladly provide.

    Using likewise it worked? Whenever I install likewise my wbinfo starts failing, I can configure it fine with just winbind, but when likewise installs it doesn't work anymore. What steps did you use to install likewise?

    Hmm, you make it sound simple hah, I have been trying that for days to no avail. So here are a couple of questions for ya:

    Did you make any changes to kerberos, PAM, or nsswitch?

    Did you use likewise 4 or 5?

    Also would you maybe post your smb.conf?

    Re: Install Samba 3.0.34 from Binary

    lol sorry
    I am using likewise 5
    i have not done any editing to my kerberose, PAM, or nsswitch files
    sorry for security reasons i cannot post the changes to the smb.conf file but i can tell you i used SWAT to do all my editing.
    just in case ou don't know what it is swat is a editing program that uses and web browser to edit your smb.conf file. i found that it made everything simpler and i gives easy help to each field. you have to login as root to it though or u wont have any editing permissions.

    Re: Install Samba 3.0.34 from Binary

    Well you don't need to post your important info, you could use xx.xxx.xxx for ip addresses and YOURDOMAINNAME for domains, but alas could you tell me if you made more edits than the following?


    security = ads
    workgroup = SHORTDOMAINNAME
    realm = YOURDOMAINNAME.COM

    idmap backend = lwicompat_v4 I tried both lwopen and lwicompat_v4
    idmap gid = 50-9999999999
    idmap uid = 50-9999999999

    I basically followed the final post of this
