The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3328
Last modified: 2006-08-28 01:36:22 UTC
I upgraded samba from 2.2.8a to 3.0.20b and I keep getting the following errors:
[2005/12/13 16:08:23, 0] auth/auth_util.c:make_server_info_info3(1173)
make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!
Here is my configuration options:
configure --prefix=/local/samab --without-ads
That went fine.
I did a make install and everything went fine.
I copied over the following files from the old samba tree:
secret.db ---> /local/samba/private/secrets.tdb - permissions 600
smbpasswd --> same location in /local/samba/private - permissions 600
all the .tdb files in /local/samba.orig/var/locks were moved over.
smb.conf --> /local/samba/lib/smb.conf
users.map --> /local/samba/lib/users.map.
I have been trying to see what could be causing this and where did pdb cme from. From the web sites I have seen that it must be my nsswitch.conf file. I changed that on the server as well as in the smb.conf file and neither worked.
So I am lost now in figuring out what could be going on.
Could someone help????
Could you please post a log level 10 output from the command failing? (e.g. log.smbd), otherwise we can't even tell what is going on.
