• Samba service not found (smbd.service)


    Title says it all but while setting up samba shares via nano, I go to start or restart the service and it tells me that the service is straight up not found at all

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo systemctl start smbd.service
    Failed to start smbd.service: Unit smbd.service not found.
    

    I have tried removing and reinstalling samba but no change…

    Let me know of any more info you need to help in this diagnosis.

  • what gives you:

    cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/smbd.service
    

    and:

    pacman -Qs samba
    pacman -Qs systemd
    

    ???

  • Do you do configurations inside:

    /etc/samba/smb.conf
    ?

    you can copy defaults with:

    $ sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf.default /etc/samba/smb.conf
    
    systemctl list-unit-files | grep .smbd
    

    will also give some more info, as

    journalctl -xb

  • I do have a copy of defaults as thats the first thing to do in all the guides of how to setup Samba

    systemctl list-unit-files | grep .smbd
    gives no output at all.

    journalctl -xb > /home/myname/journal
    generated a 280mb txt file, trying to get only the last few days worth of journal entries.

    you wouldn`t have a script to filter out

    MILLIONS (NO JOKE) of times from a text file would you? this is the bulk of that 280mb file.

  • journalctl -b1 is alot more sane giving me this.

    running journalctl -b -S yesterday gave me the timeframe i’m looking for and found 16 of this set of lines

  • systemctl status smbd.socket

    systemctl status smbd.service
    Unit smbd.service could not be found

    EDIT: WTF??? Just for shits, I tried systemctl enable smbd.service again… and it worked…

    I’m thinking this is like the programmers joke of ‘it doesn’t work… Why?’ and ‘it works… Why?’
