Description of problem:
Enable and disable for the services works but the status of the smb and nmb services are unknown in the gnome GUI window. I basically just followed everything we did for FC8 which used to work but doesn't anymore for FC9.Cannot ping machine (firewall and selinux disabled already), cannot see windows share from other machines in the network...sorry but samba doesn't seem to work anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to services
2.enable smb and nmb - status becomes updating ...restart machine and status is unknown.
3. ps shows they are running
4. Go to samba settings and enable a share for a specific user...
5. disable firewall and selinux
6. ping the machine (cannot)
7. try to connect to share (cannot...:) can't ping in the first place)
FC9 samba share doesn't work like FC8 ...or it doesn't seem to....everything used to work for FC8
windows sharing enabled.
> 6. ping the machine (cannot)
That's your primary problem, which is unrelated to Samba.
You need a working network connection between your machines
before you start trouble-shooting Samba.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
