Step by Step: Yum + Samba

This page has moved. Please update your links:http://psst0101.digitaleagle.net/2008/12/10/step-by-step-yum-samba/

I had trouble getting several things to work, and configuring yum would make it much, much easier.  So, I found this article and figured it was time to give it a try.

All of this is done in the terminal window, and so, I will go skimpy on the screenshots for this post.

Uninstalling Yum

The article mentions removing yum.  This made me a little worried, but I exported it nonetheless.

The following command will display the yum installed packages:

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -qa | grep yum
yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-2.el5
yum-3.2.8-9.el5
yum-updatesd-0.9-2.el5
yum-security-1.1.10-9.el5

Removing yum makes me wary, and so, I ran a test uninstall first and found that it was not as simple as removing just yum.  Several other packages depend on yum.

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -e --test `rpm -qa | grep yum`
error: Failed dependencies:
yum-metadata-parser is needed by (installed) createrepo-0.4.11-3.el5.noarch
yum >= 3.2.5-2 is needed by (installed) pirut-1.3.28-13.0.1.el5.noarch
yum is needed by (installed) system-config-kickstart-2.6.19.6-1.0.1.el5.noarch
yum >= 2.9.2 is needed by (installed) anaconda-11.1.2.113-1.0.1.i386

Then, I noticed that the yum version in the CentOS repository is the same version as what I have installed.  So, I decided to skip the uninstall and reinstall process.

Creating the Repository

sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

or

sudo gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

Place this in the file:

[base]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos-5
priority=1
protect=1
enabled=1

[update]
name=CentOS-$releasever – Updates
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=updates
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos-5
priority=1
protect=1
enabled=1

[addons]
name=CentOS-$releasever – Addons
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=addons
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos-5
priority=1
protect=1
enabled=1

[extras]
name=CentOS-$releasever – Extras
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=extras
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos-5
priority=1
protect=1
enabled=1

[centosplus]
name=CentOS-$releasever – Plus
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=centosplus
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos-5
priority=2
protect=1

Now, here is the Repository List:

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ yum repolist
Loading "security" plugin
repo id              repo name                                 status
addons               CentOS-5 - Addons                         enabled
base                 CentOS-5 - Base                           enabled
centosplus           CentOS-5 - Plus                           enabled
extras               CentOS-5 - Extras                         enabled
update               CentOS-5 - Updates                        enabled

Then, update with

sudo yum update

Enterprise-Release issue

When I did the yum update I got this issue:

Error: Missing Dependency: enterprise-release is needed by package up2date

I did a few queries to find out more about the enterprise-release package:

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -q --whatrequires enterprise-release
up2date-5.10.1-41.8.el5
[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides enterprise-release
enterprise-release-5-0.0.9
[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ man rpm
[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides enterprise-release --provides
config(enterprise-release) = 6:5-0.0.9
redhat-release
enterprise-release = 6:5-0.0.9
[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides enterprise-release --requires
/bin/sh
config(enterprise-release) = 6:5-0.0.9
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

I also checked on the up2date package.  Here is what it provides:

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides up2date --provides
config(up2date) = 5.10.1-41.8.el5
dmimodule.so
up2date = 5.10.1-41.8.el5

Here is what it requires:

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides up2date --requires
/bin/bash
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/sbin/chkconfig

e2fsprogs
enterprise-release
gnupg
libc.so.6
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0)
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1)

mkinitrd >= 3.2.2
newt
oracle-logos
perl
pirut
policycoreutils >= 1.18.1-4.9
python >= 2.2.2
python(abi) = 2.4
python-optik
rhnlib >= 1.8.7
rhpl >= 0.194.1-1.0.1
rpm >= 4.2.3-24_nonptl
rpm-python
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rtld(GNU_HASH)
sh-utils
system-config-kickstart

I don’t know what the solution is here.  If you have any ideas, please let me know.

Installing Samba

Here is what the repository contains:

[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ yum list | grep -i smb
gnome-vfs2-smb.i386                      2.16.2-4.el5           installed
pam_smb.i386                             1.1.7-7.2.1            installed
[pshr@hrdmosys ~]$ yum list | grep -i samba
samba-client.i386                        3.0.28-0.el5.8         installed
samba-common.i386                        3.0.28-0.el5.8         installed
samba.i386                               3.0.28-1.el5_2.1       update
samba-client.i386                        3.0.28-1.el5_2.1       update
samba-common.i386                        3.0.28-1.el5_2.1       update
samba-swat.i386                          3.0.28-1.el5_2.1       update
sblim-cmpi-samba.i386                    0.5.2-31.el5           base
sblim-cmpi-samba-devel.i386              1-31.el5               base
sblim-cmpi-samba-test.i386               1-31.el5               base
system-config-samba.noarch               1.2.39-1.el5           base

Then, I installed the graphical configuration tool to make this easier.

sudo yum install system-config-samba

This installed the other programs as well:

I did get this error message:

GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found

I didn’t take the time to troubleshoot it.  I just wanted it installed, and so, I used the command

sudo yum install system-config-samba --nogpgcheck

Now, I can use the command system-config-samba to configure samba.  Also, I can start the samba services with:

sudo /sbin/service smb start

SQR Shortcut

This page has moved.  Please update your links:
http://psst0101.digitaleagle.net/2008/12/02/sqr-shortcut/

Every server should have this shortcut on its desktop:

C:\<path>\sqrw.exe  ? <db user name>/<db password>@<db name> -zifC:\<PS Home>\sqr\pssqr.ini -ic:\<PS Home>\sqr -oc:\temp\sqr.log -fc:\temp\ -printer:pd

This shortcut allows a system administrator to double click on a shortcut, enter an SQR program name, and run the program.  The output goes to the c:\temp directory — both the report and the log.
