Re: [K12OSN] Re: HELP SERVER FROZEN



OK. It took me most of the day but it is up and running again. Thanks to the clear steps from David I got smbldap working via ssh. (Some of my backups were corrupted, but I still had my file from when I installed the server a few weeks ago.) Our windows clients were having a hard time still because the smb.conf file was overwritten and some shares disappeared. Copy and paste and we are back in business.

Thanks for the help.

I did not know that the most recent installer added automatic backups.  Awesome!
Anyhow, in the list of services to not start, do not start smb either.  smb also seems to look for ldap and hangs.  This might get you to a graphical interface at the console.

Sincerely,
Dave Hopkins
