error message "cannot open lock file ..."
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
After I installed RH 6.0(.1?) and Samba-2.0.3, I ran
"smbstatus"(or anything like that), I got an error message
like "cannot open lock file /var/lock/samba/FILE..LOCK"
(sorry I forgot the file name). It exit. I don't know if
this bug is serious or not. At least it doesn't run.
Confirmed in test lab. The message is as follows:
"Couldn't open status file /var/lock/samba/STATUS..LCK"
should be in the spec file.
The files that smbstatus needs won't be created until the
first connection is made.
