This is a topic which pops every so often -- ''where are the Init scripts for Samba4?''  The problem is that init scripts are very distribution specific.  The HOWTO states, "Samba4 alpha13 doesn't yet have init scripts included for each platform, but making one for your platform should not be difficult."  Well, they may not be rocket science, but not everyone knows how to build a robust startup script and then integrate it with their particular startup infrastructure.  This gets even more weird when distributions like Fedora radically overhaul their approach to init.  (SysV to "systemd")

The intent of this page is to provide a sample of at least a few init scripts, listed by their distribution family (eg., Debian based systems and Red Hat/Fedora).

The following describes how to use an init script to manage the Samba Active Directory (AD) domain controller (DC) service. Depending on your operating system, the location of the init script, its content, and the procedures how to manage the service can be different. For details, see your operating system's documentation.

For SysV style service init scripts, Red Hat puts the init scripts in the /etc/rc.d/init.d directory, and then links to these scripts from the various run level directories (eg, link in /etc/rc3.d/S80samba4 -> ../rc.d/init.d/samba4)

Fedora has gone to a systemd based startup for Init. You can still use SysV style scripts such as this one, and configure the automatic startup of the Samba4 server and different run levels through the "chkconfig" tool.

* Make the script executeable:
 
 
1) Retrieve the init script
 
 
 
To retrieve the Debian init script, run:
 
 
 
  $ wget "http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-samba/samba.git;a=blob_plain;f=debian/samba.samba-ad-dc.init;h=3132d2e367675f822342a5b7bc2e50c046aa3b8f;hb=HEAD" -O /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc
 
 
 
2) (Optional) Update the paths where Samba is installed
 
 
 
The Debian package assumes that Samba is installed in /usr. If you've installed it in the default location (/usr/local/samba) instead, run:
 
 
 
  $ sed -i 's|/usr/sbin|/usr/local/samba/sbin|g' /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc
 
 
 
Likewise the Debian package assumes you'll use /etc/samba/smb.conf for the configuration file. If you're using the default location and build run:
 
 
 
  $ sed -i 's|/etc/samba|/usr/local/samba/etc|g' /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc
 
 
 
 
 
3) Make the init script executable
 
 
 
Make the init script executable by running:
 
  
  $ chmod 755 /etc/init.d/samba4
+
# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc
  
4) Enable the script at startup
 
  
  $ update-rc.d samba4 defaults
 
  
== Upstart Systems (such as Ubuntu) ==
+
== Debian ==
  
Ubuntu uses the upstart system. To retrieve the upstart config file, run:
+
* Create the <code>/etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc</code> file with the following content:
 
 
  $ wget -O /etc/init/samba-ad-dc.conf 'http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-samba/samba.git;a=blob_plain;f=debian/samba-ad-dc.upstart;hb=HEAD'

#                   
 
# This script comes initially from a Debian Squeeze machine on
 
# which samba 3.x was installed with "apt-get install samba". The script
 
# was modified/adjusted so it points to the correct paths of a default
 
# samba4 installation (/usr/local/samba).
 
 
  #
 
  #
  # Installation instructions:
+
  # Start/stops the Samba daemon (samba).
# (1) copy the content of this script into your clipboard or download it
+
  # Adapted from the Samba 3 packages.
# (2) save the content into /etc/init.d/samba of your samba4 host.
+
  #
  # (3) execute "chmod +x /etc/init.d/samba" to have the script executable
 
  # (4) execute "update-rc.d samba defaults" to install auto-start function.

Introduction

The following describes how to use an init script to manage the Samba Active Directory (AD) domain controller (DC) service. Depending on your operating system, the location of the init script, its content, and the procedures how to manage the service can be different. For details, see your operating system's documentation.

  • If necessary, update the locations to the samba service, the samba-tool utility, and the smb.conf file in the /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc file.
  • Make the script executeable:
# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc



Managing the Samba AD DC Service

The following assumes that the Samba Active Directory (AD) domain controller (DC) service is managed by the /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc init script. If you have not created the script manually, see your operating system's documentation for the name of the Samba AD DC service.


Enabling and Disabling the Samba AD DC Service

To enable the Samba Active Directory (AD) domain controller (DC) service to start automatically when the system boots, enter:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6

# chkconfig samba-ad-dc enable

To disable the automatic start of the Samba AD DC service, enter:

# chkconfig samba-ad-dc disable


Debian

# update-rc.d samba-ad-dc defaults

To disable the automatic start of the Samba AD DC service, enter:

# update-rc.d -f samba-ad-dc remove


Manually Starting and Stopping the Samba AD DC Service

To manually start the Samba Active Directory (AD) domain controller (DC) service, enter:

# service start samba-ad-dc

To manually stop the Samba AD DC service, enter:

# service stop samba-ad-dc
