Description TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2008-11-11 08:51:17 UTC
1) Configuring the svcctl parameter, like

svcctl list = cron

2) connect to the Samba server with "Computer Management"

3) Try to open the property for a service (ex. cron)

4) Error dialog (attached) is displayed, that says "Configuration Manager: A general internal error occured".

5) Click OK and, the we can control the services as usual.

Comment 2 Guenther Deschner 2008-11-13 14:21:40 UTC
Should be fixed in 3-2-test, 3-3-test and master. It will be part of the next Samba releases.

Thanks for the report.
Comment 3 TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2008-12-14 10:04:04 UTC
I tested againt Samba 3.2.6 and this bug is fixed at 3.2.6. (And not at 3.2.5) 
  according to the announcement:

    * BUG 5888: Fix PNP_GetHwProfInfo().

Comment 4 TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2009-01-02 21:31:50 UTC
I tested againt Samba 3.2.6 and Windows Vista.
This error dialog occurred.

Against Samba 3.2.6 and Windows XP SP3, this works OK.
Comment 5 Guenther Deschner 2009-01-05 08:36:49 UTC
Looking into this.
Comment 6 Guenther Deschner 2009-04-15 11:42:13 UTC
Just as a reminder to myself: we need to implement PlugPlay as a svcctl service for vista (and probably also listen on PlugPlay named pipe (alias for ntsvcs))
Comment 7 Karolin Seeger 2009-05-13 03:45:13 UTC
Günther, any news on this one?
Comment 8 Guenther Deschner 2009-08-06 09:37:54 UTC
Implementing more of the plugandplay named pipe could be done in 3.5.
Comment 9 Karolin Seeger 2010-01-25 05:26:28 UTC
Too late for enhancements in 3.5 Raising version.
