    Samba 4 Install-missing samba command

    After I install samba 4 on my computer I cannot use the command samba. It tells me that it cannot find the command. To install I used the commands sudo ./configure, sudo make, and sudo make install. Is there some other command I must use to completely install samba?

    Samba 4 is still in alpha as far as I know. Is there a specific reason you are wanting to use it?

    Re: Samba 4 Install-missing samba command

    I am using samba 4 because I have already have a working samba 3 primary domain controller and I want to be able to use active directory and not have an NT4 domain

    Ah I see. I can't really help you there.

    There might be some info on Samba4, but I don't know how reliable it is considering it's still in Alpha.

    Depending on whether you installed samba4 using synaptic for did a "git" pull of the latest & then built it you will find the samba executable in one of two places

    if you used git then it probably created a samba-master directory from wherever you issued the git from.

    ./samba-master/source4

    or

    /usr/local/sbin/samba

    but you can find where its at by doing

    sudo find / -name samba -print

    samba and all the samba tools are in the same directory I believe.

    I ran into the same problem. After a few hours searching I found this : http://samba.2283325.n4.nabble.com/S...td3326610.html

    Long story short, if you installed in the default directory, you can start samba this way:

    Code:
    sudo /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba
    You will need to add that directory to your PATH in order to call just 'samba' from the command line. If you check out the Samba4/HOWTO pages, there is one for Ubuntu 9.04 that details creating an init.d script as well

    Edit:

    Also wanted to note that from everything I've read about samba4 is that its fairly reliable. It seems to be missing print server support, but other than that acts like a true AD even updated with the schema for Server 2008
