The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 349
wrong path problem in smbgroupedit
Last modified: 2005-02-07 09:06:22 UTC
i compiled samba 3.0.0rc1 with ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-acl-
support that all worked nice. but after that i wanted to modify groups with
smbgroupedit "Failed to open group mapping database". after playign a bit i
found out that the file group_mapping.tdb was generated in /usr/local/var/locks
(as it correct with the prefix) but smbgroupedit wanted to open it
in /usr/local/samba/var/locks. afte creating that it gived me a a few of the
groups but i think it is not working this way. i even tried to link does two
dirs to each other and i got the "error enum_group_mapping: could not allocate
memory for privileges"
smbgroupedit does not exists any more. Sounds like you are
using a binary from an older release. Group mappings are
managed by 'net groupmap'. This change was made before
beta 1 IIRC.
originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.
