Description Seth Vidal 2001-05-27 00:54:18 UTC
Description of Problem:
run any samba-related command on a system with the default smb.conf file
and you get:

$ smbpasswd
Unknown parameter encountered: "ssl CA certFile"
Ignoring unknown parameter "ssl CA certFile"

it seems to be due to the fact that samba is no longer built with the silly
ssl support turned on.

this should be commented out of the smb.conf file in /etc/samba

the section says this:
# The following is needed to keep smbclient from spouting spurious errors
# when Samba is built with support for SSL.
   ssl CA certFile = /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt

this is kinda a lie :)

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run smbclient
2. run smbpasswd
3. run testparm

thats all
