Samba startup with multiple interfaces
Posted on 2009-07-11
I'm having a problem where samba will not start up because one on the interfaces is not connected.
The error message is:
* WARNING: samba is scheduled to start when net.eth1 has started
eth0 is connected to a switch for the local network
eth1 is connected directly to another server
I would like Samba to serve both the network on eth0 AND the other server on eth1.
Obviously my problem comes that it will not serve anything if the other server connected to eth1 is switched off.
I would like samba to start regardless of whether eth0 or eth1 is up or down, and to serve either or both should one or both of these networks come up after samba has started.
I'm sure this must be possible. I've done a bit of google trawling and found there are bugs related to this. I don't think this is a bug, more just a case of I've not switched on a machine.
Help would be much appreciated!
