Description Lars Müller 2004-11-17 12:04:13 UTC
It's impossible to start more than one Samba daemons on one machine without
setting a different PID dir in the second, third, ... config file.

Proposed fix

Wiht this fix we use PIDDIR/daemon_name.pid if we use the default config file. 
If we use for example /etc/samba/nuernberg.conf,
PIDDIR/daemon_name-nuernberg.conf.pid is used.

I used component nmbd as I didn't find a general daemon entry.  But this bug is
valid for all Samba daemons.
Comment 3 Lars Müller 2006-11-16 05:58:58 UTC
Some crazy Samba developer added the fix to the 3_0 branch.  IIRC I didn't liked something with this.  But let us close this defect as long as no one comolains.

The good this is: svn blame doesn't blame me. :))
