Information in this document applies to any platform.
When a attempt is made to connection to the Samba SWAT, web based Samba administration tool, the swat SMF service goes into maintenance mode.
Errors such as the following are recorded in the /var/adm/messages file:
inetd[PID]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Too many bind failures for instance svc:/network/swat/tcp:default, transitioning to maintenance
The output of a a svcs -av command could appear as the following:
maintenance - Mar_07 - svc:/network/swat/tcp:default
svcs -l command output will report two swat services:
state_time Wed Mar 07 10:57:59 2012
state_time Wed Mar 07 10:57:19 2012
There would be entries in the /etc/inetd.conf such as one or both of the following:
swat stream tcp nowait.400 root /usr/sfw/swat swat
The instructions in the Solaris 10 swat (1M) man page to configure swat to be under inetd control were used to configure and enable the swat service.
