Description Mark Pröhl (dead mail address) 2004-05-10 03:48:35 UTC
I observed this behaviour with samba-3.0.4 and the fedora package 3.0.3-5 
Propably other versions show the same behaviour. 
Here is what happens: 
bash-2.05b$ testparm 2>&1 | grep role 
Server role: ROLE_DOMAIN_PDC 
bash-2.05b$ testparm -s 2>&1 | grep role

fix for 1336

I am not shure if this is really a bug. But according to the testparm manual
page "-s" only switches off the prompt:     
       -s     Without  this option, testparm will prompt for a carriage return
	      after printing the service names and before dumping the  service

Perhaps only the man page has to be fixed?

Updated patch for 3.0.21a

This is definitely a bug as Server Role should be display in silent (no-prompt) mode as pointed out by the original patch supplier. This is just an updated patch to go against the current tree.

This is fixed now I think in 3.0.21b
