    Problems setting os level on Samba


    I am logged in as root and it will not let me change any settings. I went into the smb.conf file using vi and it let me set the os level but it changes it back to 65 when I go into yast and make changes. I cannot change any setting in the Samba server expert global settings.

    There is a Window server already set up right now and I don't want to mess it up while I'm trying to set up user accounts and email on the Samba server.

    probably you should stop Yast before changing the os level to another one! Then you should reload.

    But os level 65 is the most general os level you can use in Samba? Why do you want to change it?

    I tried it with only the command prompt open but when all was done and save through that I went into YAST to check other settings and after I press finish under Samba it looses the setting.

    The reason why I was trying to lower it was because I read that if you set it to 2 while your setting things up your less likely to mess things up with the network that is already set up. I also read that if you kept it at about a 17 that the Samba server will not take over a win server already running on a network.

    I am more than new this is the first server I have put together so these ideas concerning the os level may be misguided

    Thank you for responding. I more than appreciate another perspective
