The Samba files are where the Samba shares and smb.conf files are stored. The Sun Cluster HA for Samba data service requires that these files are stored within a configuration directory that reflects the NetBIOS name for the Samba or winbind instance. The Samba files needs to be placed on shared storage as either a cluster file system or a highly available local file system.
The following deployment example has been taken from Appendix A, Deployment Example: Installing Samba packaged with Solaris 10, where the configuration directory is /local/samba/smb1 which is a highly available local file system and the NetBIOS name is smb1.
Vigor5# mkdir -p /local/samba/smb1 Vigor5# cd /local/samba/smb1 Vigor5# mkdir -p lib logs private shares var/locks
If Samba is downloaded and compiled from http://www.samba.org you may also want to consider placing these binaries on a cluster file system or highly available local file system.
Refer to Determining the Location of Application Binaries in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS for a discussion on cluster file systems and highly available local file systems.
