Samba problem. code=exited, status=255


(D) #1

Briefly describe your issue below:
This is my first post, and i need some help. I recently updated my OS, and i started getting an error which is displayed below. I am not sure of the format to compile this in, but i am sure it will be sufficient enough to figure out what the problem is, and hopefully a soulution. Please feel free to ask any additional questions. please feel free.

Here is sudo systemctl status smbd.service :

What version of Parrot are you running? (uname -a:
Linux parrot 4.18.0-parrot10-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.18.10-1parrot10 (2018-10-06) x86_64 GNU/Linux)

What method did you use to install Parrot? (USB Flashed w/ Etcher x64)

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes, seperate Hard Drive on seperate SATA Port)

If there are any similar issues or solutions, link to them below: No

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below: Name them.


(Matt) #2

If you dont need it, i wouldnt worry about it.

If you dont know if you need it: https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/current/man-html/smbd.8.html

Nevertheless i will have a look.


(D) #3

Well when i type: sudo service smbd start, it doesnt work… And i share files throughout the network.
Thank you.


(Matt) #4

When you start it manually does it spit out anything different?

Paste the output of testparam -s here, it will let us know if the configuration is ok.

Have you tried purging and re-installing?


(D) #5

Yes on the purging and installing. And i will as soon as I get in front of the machine. Thank you.

(yes the single letter username is correct)

when i start samba manually:

sudo service smbd start:
Job for smbd.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See “systemctl status smbd.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.
And those printeouts are above in the First post.
ALSO: Firejail has been purged, and smbd worked fine after i did that, (along with everything else) then a cuople months later it just stopped.
What is exit code 255?


(Matt) #7

Exit code 255 usually means the exit code was out of range (the max is 255) https://linux.die.net/abs-guide/exitcodes.html.

testparam didnt report any errors so the config should be fine.

These logs arnt giving us much to work with here, unless im blind. Check if nmbd service started ok service nmbd status.

I know logs are kept in /var/log/samba/ but i dont know if there will be any useful information in them. Might be worth having a look for obvious errors, if any.


(Nico Paul) #8

It says bad user so maybe permissions problem? (I’d be mighty surprised if I saw something you didn’t lmfao but who knows I’m on my 4th espresso haha

I havent tried to add another user yet, let me try that…

It wont let me add another user:

(Matt) #11

Have a look in /var/log/samba/log.smbd


(D) #12

Here is what I got from log.smbd, (there are 6 different variations of it) I think Nico might be onto somthing about permissions problem… ???

(Matt) #13

Right now we have something to work with. The ‘Bad User’ is default, but it is user/group related.

Have a look at these:
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13697
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=909465

I believe there are some workarounds for this issue.


(D) #14

I also vaugly remember installing zoneminder, but i couldnt get it to work, (thats when the problem started, i believe) and i am pretty sure it uses mysql. I just purged it, and the same problem occus. I’ll look at the workarounds.

Also this is what i get when i purge and re-install samba:

(Nico Paul) #15

Try removing Samba again through apt and install via pip after ensuring your user has permissions of samba printers etc is the next step id suggest after following what kidclown linked to
Edit actually try

firejail - - noprofile samba


(D) #16

I do not use firejail, i purged it as soon as i installed ParrotSec. It has caused me alot of problems in the past.

I looked around and found this page:
https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/current/man-html/samba-tool.8.html#idp5528432

And used this command to redo my logs so hopefully somthing will pop its head up:
“sudo samba-tool user list -d 10” and got this from terminal immediately:

Then i did this:
“sudo service smbd restart” i got this in the log.smbd

I apologize, you did say that in an earlier post. I actually have not seen very many instances (honestly any that i believe dont have any problems truly) Where the user has benefited or even not suffered inconveniences of a different kind from purging firejail instead of configuring it properly. We have made a lfew pretty substantial changes to its interaction and the balance of convenience and usability while not compromising system security as much.when was the last time you used it? Would you be open to trying it again possibly? Did you check apparmor logs yet? The you shall not pass is one of the messag s from update-rc.d, so check that and init-system-helpers. These are multipl things/places to check but id be really bamboozled if its not in one of the places @KidKlown or I have listed, simply because im, pretty sure we’ve covered everything that would do it minus the server youre using. Actually thats a good question if you dont make any progress down any of those paths; what kind of server do you use (you said you use it for files right?)?

If i re-install firejail, will it affect any of the programs that i have currently installed?

I am not sure what apparmor logs are. I seen the “You shall not pass” instance.

To answer your server question, just my computer that i d/l videos and I share some folders and pull video from the shared directory to vlc on FireTV Stick… (simple. :slight_smile:) or my phone, or w/e that uses samba.

I have a third machine that has ParrotSec on it and i didnt try to install ZoneMinder on, and i can serve file via Samba no problem, but my other laptop and desktop i did, and since I have had this problem. My main PC, i can re-install the OS again, and get it back to where i like it and be ok about it, but the laptop, i cant for an undisclosed reason, and i would like to get the samba working. I have since uninstalled ZoneMinder, but experiencing the same problem.


(Nico Paul) #19

I would not advise going through the headache of getting fire jail all set up again and then what if it wasn’t firejail, that’s one of the reasons I like to advise clean installs to clear the possibilities a little of things that tend to rear their ugly heads bigger and badder sometime in the future. Plus I always used to make it a game of how each one was more effecient and had less errors (sometimes it took a few times to reach that metric) and it helped me understand my actual needs as well.

I will post this link again: :point_down:
