The following tasks must be accomplished prior to installing Samba. In a cluster, these tasks must be completed an each cluster member that will run Samba.
- Verify the system is running a supported VSI OpenVMS version *
Samba is supported on:
VSI OpenVMS i64 v8.4-1H1 and newer - v8.4-2L1 VSI OpenVMS Alpha v8.4-2L1 and newer
- The system must be running one of the following TCP/IP stacks:
TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS VSI TCP/IP Multinet TCPware
- The SYSGEN parameter PROCSECTCNT must be a minimum of 512 *
- The SYSGEN parameter CHANNELCNT must be a minimum of 2560 *
If necessary, add the following lines to SYS$SYSTEM:MODPARAMS.DAT, AUTOGEN, and reboot the system:
MIN_PROCSECTCNT = 512 MIN_CHANNELCNT = 2560
The software must be installed and used on an ODS-5 file system; the software cannot be installed on an ODS-2 file system and ODS-2 file systems cannot be used for file shares. If migrating from CIFS for OpenVMS, if CIFS is installed on an ODS-2 volume, convert the volume to ODS-5 before installing Samba. Alternately, move CIFS for OpenVMS to an ODS-5 volume as documented in the CIFS for OpenVMS Administrator Guide.
The OpenVMS internationalization data kit (VMSI18N) must be installed in order for Samba to be able to correctly support international characters in file names
Samba can run on multiple cluster members simultaneously, either in coordination with other cluster members or independent of other cluster members. When multiple cluster members share the same Samba installation directory - SAMBA$ROOT: - they are considered to be in the same Samba cluster. Thus, multiple instances of Samba may run simultaneously in the same cluster.
Each instance of Samba requires a unique Samba cluster alias name (set during configuration). Cluster members sharing the same SAMBA$ROOT installation directory share the same Samba cluster alias name.
CAUTION: While multiple instances of Samba may run simultaneously in a cluster, multiple instances should not allow access to the same files as no lock coordination occurs between Samba instances. Administrators who ignore this recommendation risk file corruption.
