[Linux-cluster] problem stopping dead samba service




i just had a problem that may need looking into.

my samba processes had been killed. the init.d scripts for samba (smb and winbind) both return a non-zero status when you try to stop the service when it's already dead. clusvcadm couldn't stop the service because of this non-zero status, and i was also unable to start it.

i fixed it for now by making the stop functions in smb and winbind return 0.

are there any accepted standards for /etc/init.d scripts? What is supposed to happen when stopping a non-running service? in other words, is this a samba or a cluster problem?
