Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux Support Pack 3

Situation

rcnovell-cifs start starts the CIFS daemon but it immediately exits and becomes "unused"

The cifs.log shows:

Resolution

The nmbd daemon is running and using ports that CIFS requires.
Stop the nmbd daemon
Load CIFS

Additional Information

The customer had first installed Samba and then uninstalled it and installed CIFS.
Samba loaded the nmbd daemon and it was still running after the uninstall of Samba.
CIFS could not run with another process using it's required ports.
