Summary0017791: Samba may fail to start on boot
DescriptionDepending on some kind of race condition on boot, we have one report of Samba failing to start on boot because the nslcd daemon is in an unhappy state connecting to OpenLDAP
Additional InformationDarryl thinks issue lies somewhere inside openldap, however, may already be fixed upstream in more recent versions.

For now, as a work around, we implemented on an onboot 'hotfix':

 In the folder:


Create a file named 'samba-hotfix' and add to this file:

/bin/systemctl restart nslcd.service
/bin/systemctl restart smb.service
/bin/systemctl restart nmb.service

Change the attributes of the file:

chmod 755 /var/clearos/events/onboot/samba-hotfix
TagsNo tags attached.

I had a restart failure a couple of days ago. The problem seemed to be creating the guest account/ from /var/log/samba/smbd:
