Example: Create the Samba smb.conf Configuration File

The Samba files are located where the Samba shares and smb.conf files are stored. The HA for Samba data service requires that these files be stored within a configuration directory that reflects the NetBIOS name, which in this example is samba-lh for the Samba or winbind instance.

  1. Create the Samba configuration directory.
    zc-node-1# mkdir /failover/samba/samba-lh
    zc-node-1# cd /failover/samba/samba-lh
    zc-node-1# mkdir -p lib logs private shares/data var/locks
    zc-node-1# chmod 1777 /failover/samba/samba-lh/shares/data
  2. Create the Samba smb.conf configuration file.

    For more information about possible configuration options, see the example configuration file /etc/samba/smb.conf-example, the smb.conf(5) man page, and the online documentation available at https://www.samba.org.

    zc-node-1# vi /failover/samba/samba-lh/lib/smb.conf
       workgroup = OSC
       server string = Samba (%v) Server (%h)
       security = ADS
       log file = /failover/samba/samba-lh/logs/log.%m
       max log size = 50
       realm = OSC.EXAMPLE.COM
       passdb backend = smbpasswd
       interfaces =
       wins support = yes
       dns proxy = no
       netbios name = samba-lh
       bind interfaces only = yes
       pid directory = /failover/samba/samba-lh/var/locks
       private dir = /failover/samba/samba-lh/private
       smb passwd file = /failover/samba/samba-lh/private/smbpasswd
       lock dir = /failover/samba/samba-lh/var/locks
       winbind cache time = 30
       allow trusted domains = no
       idmap config * : backend = tdb
       idmap config * : range = 10001-20000
       idmap config DOMAIN : backend = rid
       idmap config DOMAIN : range = 10000-20000
       idmap config DOMAIN : base_rid = 0
       winbind enum groups = yes
       winbind enum users = yes
       winbind use default domain = yes
       comment = Home Directories
       browseable = no
       writable = yes
       comment = Monitor directory for Oracle Solaris Cluster
       path = /tmp
       browsable = no
       path = /failover/samba/samba-lh/shares/data
       comment = Data Share
       read only = no
       writable = yes
  3. Verify the smb.conf configuration file for correctness.
    zc-node-1# testparm -s /failover/samba/samba-lh/lib/smb.conf
