Configuring the smb, nmb & SWAT services is not enough to allow xinetd.d to

The Terminal command

sudo /bin/systemctl start xinetd.service

gives this error:

Job for xinetd.service failed. See 'systemctl status xinetd.service' and
'journalctl -n' for details. Running the following command:

systemctl status xinetd.service

xinetd.service - LSB: Starts the xinet daemon. Be aware that xinetd doesn't
start if no service is configured to run under it. To enable xinetd services go
to YaST Network Services (xinetd) section.

I have a bash script that can setup smb, nmb & swat for you automatically. I
am checking it out against openSUSE 12.3 RC2 right now.

3. Enable one or more services to use xinetd
4. Press Finish on bottom Right
5. Reenter Network Services to find it is still disabled.
6. Check with terminal command: systemctl status xinetd.service
Actual Results:
Network Services (xinetd) is not enabled.

Network Services (xinetd) is enabled.
