Description Alexander Prudnikov 2013-09-03 15:08:21 UTC
On Scientific Linux 6.1 I'm unsuccessfully trying to run smbtad 1.2.6 without DB. I've tried various flavors of the option, but nothing helped.
Below is my console output:

$ smbtad -U 0 -u -d 10
ERROR: drivername == NULL. Exiting.
Error connecting to the database.
please check syslog.

$ sudo grep smbta /var/log/messages

Comment 1 Holger Hetterich 2014-02-13 22:08:06 UTC
Ok, this is because smbtad doesn't write to the database with -U 0 but still runs the functions to connect to the DB at startup. This will block the 1.2.7 release tracker bug. Thanks for reporting Alexander a fix will is upcoming.

should be fixed with commit 77dd134f3e1dbe3ec2d80bdbf9ff8794a38a2ade to the devel branch, but I need to test it first..
