I am trying to set up Samba/NFS for linux + 1 windows machine through a 4-hub lan.
I have installed in the packages using urpmi including nfs & nfs utils [rpc] I get the error message 'database cannot open'. I think someone in my team forgot to add the mac address of my machine [with samba intalled] in the router's list of reserved ip's. I can browse but not ping other machines on the lan. What does the error message mean, and how do I fix ? running Mandrake 9.2
