FIXED: Vista and network backups to SLUG
- from my blog
After much work I got my vista machine able to do a network backup to my
SLUG. I was getting an error that read: "Cannot create a file when that
file already exists" The reason this was failing is due to a bug
> in samba. The defect has been fixed but my Debian distro hasn't beenupdated with the new version of Samba. To get everything working,
here's what I did:
1. I removed samba from my slug "apt-get remove samba"
2. I installed subversion, gcc and build-essential
3. I followed the directions
ml> on samba.org to download the source and compile and install the
latest version of samba. (compile took about 4 or 5 hours on my SLUG)
4. I copied my old smb.conf file to the new location my new install was
looking for it (/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf)
5. I modified /etc/init.d/samba to reference the new smdb and nmdb
6. I ran /usr/local/samba/bin/pdbedit to register my users with samba.
Now Samba's back up and running and my network backups from vista are
working like a charm.
