Samba on boot startup problems

Hi,

I have a fresh install of fc16 on my laptop and am trying to get samba working. I can start the smb and nmb services via swat but they dont start on boot. How can I fix that?

Further, when they are running I cannot ping a local address by name. It goes to an outside address instead.

I have added wins to the hostname section and as fate would have it, I still cannot ping the local network via name. it has to be by ip number.

Thanks for any help.




Code:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2012/01/16 09:06:46

[global]
	workgroup = OFFICE
	server string = Samba Server Version %v
	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
	max log size = 50
	idmap config * : backend = tdb
	cups options = raw

[homes]
	comment = Home Directories
	read only = No
	browseable = No

[printers]
	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/spool/samba
	printable = Yes
	print ok = Yes
	browseable = No

[Public]
	comment = Vaio Public
	path = /home/george/Public
	read only = No
	guest ok = Yes

[Downloads]
	comment = Vaio Downloads
	path = /home/george/Downloads
	read only = No
	guest ok = Yes

Re: Samba on boot startup problems

To get the services to start at boot-time, use the following command as root:
Code:
systemctl enable smb.service nmb.service
I'm not sure about the other problem (name resolution). I never got wins to work myself; on our little home network I use static IP addresses, which are put in the /etc/hosts files on each machine.

Re: Samba on boot startup problems

Thanks!

That gets her started.

Now if i can just get it to see the outside world. My home network is composed of fixed and dhcp for the ip's. It has always worked well with samba. I have 19 nodes in my home network what with the cameras, dvr's, computers, wifi and all. I just wish samba would install and work just once.

Thanks Again!
