28.2. Starting and Stopping Samba

You can start or stop the Samba server automatically during boot or manually. Starting and stopping policy is a part of the YaST Samba server configuration described in Section 28.3.1, “Configuring a Samba Server with YaST”.

To stop or start running Samba services with YaST, use System+System Services (Runlevel). From a command line, stop services required for Samba with rcsmb stop && rcnmb stop and start them with rcnmb start && rcsmb start.
