    If anyone asks you to
    sudo rm -rf /
    you would be better to just format the partition. It's faster and at least you may be able to recover all your LOST DATA!!

    Checked the boot and startup processes in webmin
    viewed content of the mechanics.

    found: service
    Usage: service < option > | --status-all | [ service_name [ command | --full-restart ] ]

    service smbd start
    smbd start/running, process 1510

    service nmbd start
    nmbd start/running, process 1527

    made 2 shell scripts

    open shell and..

    cd /etc/init.d
    echo service smbd start > samba-up
    echo service nmbd start >> samba-up

    echo service smbd stop > samba-down
    echo service nmbd stop >> samba-down

    chmod +rx samba-up samba-down

    replace the Samba start/stop entries in Webmin
    with /etc/init.d/samba-up - and /etc/init.d/samba-down

    issue resolved?

    So now How does one disable the starting of samba on boot? Back about a decade ago when I setup Red Hat and Mandrake servers it was as simple as
    service smb off
    I used to be able to apt-get install rcconf and disable it there. does rcconf play well with upstart?

    How does one simply disable samba on boot now that everything is moved to upstart.

    lol the documentation needs changed too


    Finally, restart the samba services to enable the new configuration:

    sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart

    So the way you need to restart samba is now this way:

    sudo service smbd restart
    sudo service nmbd restart
    Does this detach the daemons so they run in the background? Just today I set up samba and after making changes to the smb.conf file I used the above commands to restart samba. All was good until I logged out of the server and people lost their connections to the network share. So I restarted them again and left the server logged in until I could sort it out.

    It looks like you should have to use initctl to start or stop SAMBA, but there is some problem with the /etc/init/smbd.conf file used by Upstart that prevents it from working. Anybody have any ideas about how to modify the script so it will work correctly? --John
