Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6404
reload functionality of samba initscript is broken
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
In /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb, in the reload part, it does
killproc -HUP smbd
but it should be
killproc smbd -HUP
This will cause killproc to issue a signal 9.....
This is fixed in the latest samba packages in Raw Hide.
