What should I do if I wanted to start nmb through the script and not by
the boot.local?

Just like in the sysvinit case, you need to explicitly configure it to
be started during boot. Think of /etc/systemd/system as
of /etc/init.d. Having script there is not enough to make script run
on startup; you also need to link it in proper "run-level". If service
file has correct [Install] section, you can do it using "systemctl
enable nmbd.service" (similar to chkconfig nmbd on). If service file
does not have [Install] section, you can manually link it
into /etc/systemd/system/ (or so that service is started wherever you boot.
Again, this is exactly the same with sysvinit scripts lacking meta
information for chkconfig - you manually link into
respective /etc/init.d/rc?.d directory.

Andrey, sorry for the late answer.
Thanks for your explanation.

I looked at the service files and they have [Install] section.
I applied systemctl enable:

# systemctl enable nmb.service
ln -s '/etc/systemd/system/nmb.service'

# systemctl enable smb.service
ln -s '/etc/systemd/system/smb.service'

# systemctl enable winbind.service
ln -s '/etc/systemd/system/winbind.service'

But the service are still not started.

# systemctl status nmb.service
nmb.service - Samba NMB Daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/nmb.service; enabled)
Active: failed (Result: resources) since Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:46:41
+0200; 13min ago
CGroup: name=systemd:/system/nmb.service

# systemctl status smb.service
smb.service - Samba SMB Daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/smb.service; enabled)
Active: failed (Result: resources) since Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:43:19
+0200; 18min ago
CGroup: name=systemd:/system/smb.service

That's pretty weird. Result: resources usually mean some low level
operation (like memory allocation or process creation) failed.

Aug 30 13:43:18 linux smbd[3765]: [2013/08/30 13:43:18.971776, 0]

I can't start them manually either:

# systemctl start nmb.service
Job failed. See system journal and 'systemctl status' for details.
# systemctl start smb.service
Job failed. See system journal and 'systemctl status' for details

Here are the contents of service files:

Where have you got them from? I just installed samba on 12.3 and it
does not ship with any unit definition. It is using /etc/init.d scripts
and is started normally, both nmbd and smbd. I doubt very much 12.2
did anything different.

# cat /etc/systemd/system/nmb.service
Description=Samba NMB Daemon


How to you know this is the correct file? Default on
openSUSE is /var/run/samba if nothing is specified (which is the same
as /run/samba). This alone would prevent systemd from detecting service


This file does not exist after clean installation of samba on 12.3

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/nmbd $NMBDOPTIONS


# cat /etc/systemd/system/smb.service
Description=Samba SMB Daemon nmb.service winbind.service

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/smbd $SMBDOPTIONS


Should I edit the service files?

Unless you are learning systemd, I'd say you should use package that
comes with your version of openSUSE and do not try to "fix" it.
