File Server / Samba fails to start up

    We're currently trying to get the Plesk File Server module up and running on a few fedora core 2 and 3 linux servers. The latest version of Plesk 7.5.3 has been installed, the file server module, it has been configured with a test

    The errors in the samba logs reflect :
    ==> log.nmbd <==
    [2005/06/09 13:08:55, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(794)
      Netbios nameserver version 2.2.7a-security-rollup-fix started.

    [2005/06/09 13:08:55, 0] nmbd/nmbd_subnetdb.c:create_subnets(239)
      create_subnets: No local interfaces !
    [2005/06/09 13:08:55, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(872)
      ERROR: Failed when creating subnet lists. Exiting.
    SMBD starts up fine, but nmbd will not start, regardless of the
    configuration used or changed via Plesk.

    Example server :
    Linux <protected>.com 2.4.25-040218 #1 SMP Wed Feb 18 17:59:29 CET 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    We have experienced this issue on multiple servers, the same issue. What appears to be the case is that nmbd fails since it fails to find an interface to use, by default - samba should just query the kernel and use any active interface found apart from loopback, but is not occurring, despite multiple configuration definitions of eth0, IP address and subnet blocks.

    Anyone else seen this or know of a fix ?
