Description Forza 2018-08-01 08:20:31 UTC
I think it would be beneficial to have a variable for lockdir in conf.d. 

init.d/samba should check for the lockdir location and create it if missing.

### /etc/init.d/samba
start() {
    [ -d "${piddir}" ] || mkdir -p "${piddir}"
    [ -d "${lockdir}" ] || mkdir -p "${lockdir}"

### /etc/conf.d/samba
daemon_list="smbd nmbd"

Forgot to mention the accompanying smb.conf line:

### /etc/samba/smb.conf
lock directory = /tmp/samba/locks
Comment 2 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-08-01 08:25:33 UTC
And what if a user chagnes the dir in /etc/samba/smb.conf but not in conf.d?
Comment 3 Forza 2018-08-01 08:32:52 UTC
I suppose it is the same issue as if you write some other error in the config file? For example if you put wrong path to the pidfile in conf.d.

Otherwise, maybe a more complicated way is to check for the "lock files" line, if exists in smb.conf.
