I'm trying to get samba working in a test environment.  I do not need
great functionality, so I'm going off of the simple setup stuff in the
Handbook.  This should be enough.  I've configured my
/usr/local/etc/smb.conf file for a single share (the /tmp share) and
changed the workgroup name and set passwd backend = smbpasswd; I then
tried to start samba with /usr/local/etc/rc.d/samba start.  After
this, I get only, "Removing stale Samba tdb files:  done."  The
handbook shows that I should see,

Starting SAMBA: removing stale tdbs :
Starting nmbd.
Starting smbd.

I then tried "sockstat" and did not see any listening sockets for the
daemon "smbd."  I don't know if I would, but I wanted to try this.
I'm not convinced at this point that I'm actually getting samba to
start.  How can I verify this?

I'm trying to add users to the smbpasswd file using smbpasswd, but
this is to no avail.  What am I doing wrong?
