update smb.conf template file
Last modified: 2009-12-16 07:39:50 EST
The template file included in system-config-samba is not the same used in the samba packages. There are a few things we added in the samba packages like an explanation on how to deal with selinux.
In the system-config-samba template there is also a commented option that points the smb passwd file to /etc/samba/smbpasswd
We moved the smbpasswd file to /var/lib/samba/private/smbpasswd many moons ago.
Now, would it make sense to keep only one .template file in samba-common package and have both samba and system-config-samba use it ?
If you agree I'd like to work on this during the F-11 timeframe.
I'll update the template to the smb.conf file that is in samba-common-3.2.5-0.23.fc10, but having a template (or unchanged default) file in samba-common sounds like a good idea to have.
Now that you mention it, I need to verify if s-c-samba handles smb passwd files in different locations as well, this may just be some legacy code which has it hard-coded ;-).
I've updated smb.conf.template in the upstream repository.
I found out the template thing checking if by chance smbpasswd was referenced directly.
It seem not, and it seem you correctly use samba tools instead, when you need to manipulate users/passwords
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Seems to me this is fixed now.
