On SCO OpenServer 5.0.6 we'll need the following patches (in this order of dependence):
- RS506A - Release Supplement for SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.6 (ver rs506a)
- OSS646C - Execution Environment Supplement (ver 1.2.0a)
- OSS663A - LPD supplement for OpenServer 5.0.6 with OSS646
- gwxlibs-2.1.0Ba - Supplemental Graphics, Web and X11 Libraries (ver 2.1.0Ba)
The OSR 5.0.7 version of Samba 3.0.14Aa is available from ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/skunkware/osr5/vols/samba-3.0.14Aa-VOLS.cpio
You'll want to create a directory (say /tmp/samba3) and download the .cpio file there. If you are not familiar with CPIO files, you can examine the man page, or just run this command to produce the VOL files:
cpio -idmv -I samba-3.0.14Aa-VOLS.cpio
I'm going to assume you know how to install VOL files in SCO software manager. All four (rs506a, oss646c, oss663a, gwxlibs) can be installed as media images. For the existing Samba 2.x, I usually just disable it in custom rather than removing it, but YMMV.
The startup files are /etc/init.d/smb and /etc/init.d/nmb. Samba looks for /etc/samba/smb.conf for the configuration. You should be able to backup your original configuration and drop it right in for Samba 3.
Be sure to check /etc/rc2.d for startup files. I create symbolic links to the startup files like so:
ln -s /etc/init.d/smb /etc/rc2.d/S99smbd
ln -s /etc/init.d/nmb /etc/rc2.d/S99nmbd
You can reboot the server, or just run the the rc2.d scripts:
I looked for a Samba 3 solution on SCO 5.0.6 for a client that
UPDATED (04/23/2010): I added a note about installing OSS663A. Also, it did help with the streams memory leak on that SCO OpenServer system.
UPDATED (11/14/2011): Updated the links to Samba3 on Skunkware and the patches. Expanded explanation on restarting Samba.
OK, found one guy that says he's been running it OK for months (as of Oct 31, 2007). The URL isReplyDelete
That makes me feel a little better.
OK... you'll also need to install OSS663A after installing OSS646C.ReplyDelete
You're a lifesaver! Thanks so much for posting this. It seems that OSS663A does not produce VOL files when run through CPIO. Do you know how I can install it?
Thanks very much.
Follow up - I did more Googling and realized that the file is a VOL file that just needs to be renamed. It still didn't install, but at least the software manager recognized it. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for taking the time to set this up. Now your page is one of the few resources available for old 5.0.6ReplyDelete
