Description

I installed from a full install (minimal installation) DVD of fedora 23 per the instructions on the full install page and when the system came online, I noticed that samba wasn't running. Per another post in the forum, I changed my router specifications per the out of the box instructions and rebooted both the server and my pc. I can see the server and my amahi account sees the server without issue.

However, the samba service is still not listed as running.

I ran the following command with these result: systemctl status smb

[root@localhost ~]# systemctl status smb
‚óŹ smb.service - Samba SMB Daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/smb.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

There was no log file in /var/log/samba/smbd.log

I checked the monit.log and found many entries like below:

[CDT May 30 01:40:27] error    : 'smb' process is not running
[CDT May 30 01:40:27] info     : 'smb' trying to restart
[CDT May 30 01:40:27] info     : 'smb' start: /usr/bin/systemctl

I then ran the suggested command journalctl -xe and the following results were displayed repeatedly:

I was able to resolve by ensuring that all samba dependencies were installed or up to date by executing the following:

yum install libacl-devel libblkid-devel gnutls-devel \
   readline-devel python-devel gdb pkgconfig libattr-devel \
   krb5-workstation python-crypto docbook-style-xsl openldap-devel

Update from powderburned:

Just an FYI.

After getting samba to work, share permissions didn't appear to be managed by amahi. Although I could see
the samba shares listed in \\hda\ I could not access them with any of the accounts in amahi. I also 
reassigned the owner:group the same as all of the out of the box shares but this didn't resolve the issue.

I decided to start over and went to the fedora site to download the netinstaller directly and burned it to 
a dvd instead of a cd per that site's instructions. This worked.

I was able to install via the netinstaller and now my amahi server is up and running with all of the 
functions I had with my older 7 install previously.

May need to test this install to replicate the issues and a potential solution.
