Error samba daemon

RedHat 7.1
Problem: can't start the smbd daemon

#/etc/rc.d/init.d/samba start

ps -e
;displays the nmbd daemon running but not smbd

#/etc/rc.d/init.d/samba restart
;same thing. nmbd is running but not smbd

there is no firewall installed (at least that is what I told RedHat during installation).

Any kinds of suggestion is greatly appreciated

Can you run it manually?
On one of my systems it's in /usr/sbin, so I can start it by typing :
/usr/sbin/smbd -D

If that doesn't work, try turning on debugging:
/usr/sbin/smbd -D -d 1 -l /tmp/smbd_log
