Sun Cluster Data Service for Samba Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to turn on debug for Sun Cluster HA for Samba

Sun Cluster HA for Samba can be used by multiple Samba or winbind instances. It is possible to turn debug on for all Samba or winbind instances or a particular Samba or winbind instance.

A config file exists under /opt/SUNWscsmb/xxx/etc, where xxx refers to samba or winbind.

These files allow you to turn on debug for all Samba or winbind instances or for a specific Samba or winbind instance on a particular node with Sun Cluster. If you require debug to be turned on for Sun Cluster HA for Samba across the whole Sun Cluster, repeat this step on all nodes within Sun Cluster.

  1. Edit /etc/syslog.conf and change daemon.notice to daemon.debug.

    # grep daemon /etc/syslog.conf
    *.err;kern.debug;daemon.notice;mail.crit        /var/adm/messages
    *.alert;kern.err;daemon.err                     operator

    Change the daemon.notice to daemon.debug and restart syslogd. Note that the output below, from grep daemon /etc/syslog.conf, shows that daemon.debug has been set.

    # grep daemon /etc/syslog.conf
    *.err;kern.debug;daemon.debug;mail.crit        /var/adm/messages
    *.alert;kern.err;daemon.err                    operator

    Restart the syslog daemon.

    1. If running Solaris 9

      # pkill -1 syslogd
    2. If running Solaris 10

      # svcadm disable system-log
      # svcadm enable system-log
  2. Edit /opt/SUNWscsmb/xxx/config.

    Perform this step for the samba or winbind components that require debug output, on each node of Sun Cluster as required.

    Edit /opt/SUNWscsmb/xxx/etc/config and change DEBUG= to DEBUG=ALL or DEBUG=resource.

    # cat /opt/SUNWscsmb/samba/etc/config
    # Copyright 2006 Sun Microsystems, Inc.  All rights reserved.
    # Use is subject to license terms.
    #ident   "@(#)config 1.1     06/03/21 SMI"
    # Usage:
    #       DEBUG=<RESOURCE_NAME> or ALL

    Note –

    To turn off debug, reverse the steps above.
