Bug Couldn't open status file /var/samba/STATUS.LCK

I believe i have most of samba configured right but i get this error each time time try to run it. I was given suggestion that i touch the file, i did, but i still cannot rid myself of this error.

Any suggestions

Check Permissions First


(1) What is the UID of the samba daemon processes?

(2) What is the UID and GID of the directory where the LOCK file is located?

(3) What are the permissions of (2)?

All of these must be coordinated for samba (or any process) to read/write a LOCK file (or any file for that matter).

First of all its not 'STATUS.LCK'. its 'STATUS..LCK '. Can you see any defference. Smilie

try
#touch /var/lock/samba/STATUS..LCK

The STATUS..LCK file is created as soon as someone accesses a file shared by samba.
