    That is caused by next lines in the start script:

        # Move /opt/var/lock to ramdrive, else the maintenance of browse.dat will keep the disk awake
    if [ ! -h /opt/var/lock ]
    then
    mv /opt/var/lock/* /var/lock/
    rmdir /opt/var/lock && ln -s /var/lock /opt/var/lock
    fi

    Apparently you don't have an /opt/var/lock directory, so you can just create the symlink

    ln -s /var/lock /opt/var/lock

    Thank you for the quick answer.

    Unfortunetly after i did the command

    ln -s /var/lock /opt/var/lock
    
    

    and then tried to start

    /opt/etc/init.d/S09ZyXELSambaReplacement start
    

    nothing happens.

    What can i do?

    Try restart instead of start. Or reboot the box.

    Use the 'debug mode' of the startscript:

    /bin/sh -x /opt/etc/init.d/S09ZyXELSambaReplacement start

    Is this good or bad?

    I tried to check smbstatus but it throws an error.

    ~ # /bin/sh -x /opt/etc/init.d/S09ZyXELSambaReplacement start

    • prgmname1=/opt/sbin/nmbd
    • prgmname2=/opt/sbin/smbd
    • configfile=/opt/etc/samba/ZyXELSambaReplacement.conf
    • nmbdpid=/opt/var/run/nmbd-ZyXELSambaReplacement.conf.pid
    • smbdpid=/opt/var/run/smbd-ZyXELSambaReplacement.conf.pid
    • basename /opt/etc/init.d/S09ZyXELSambaReplacement
    • [ S09ZyXELSambaReplacement = samba.sh ]
    • startreplacement
    • [ -f /etc/init.d/samba.replaced.sh ]
    • return
    • exit

    this is the output.

    [ -f /etc/init.d/samba.replaced.sh ]

    return

    Are you sure that it isn't automatically started on boot? The start procedure is roughly

    • Stop stock firmware (/etc/init.d/samba.sh stop)
    • Rename firmware startscript to /etc/init.d/samba.replaced.sh
    • Create a symlink /etc/init.d/samba.sh to /opt/etc/init.d/S09ZyXELSambaReplacement
    • Start the Entware samba via this symlink (/etc/init.d/samba.sh start)

    The symlink is created because the firmware uses it to restart samba when needed. This way the firmware restarts the Entware samba without knowing (or needing to know)

    Stopping of the replacement is the same sequence reversed.

    The script checks if the renamed startscript is available, and if so, then exits, which seems to be the case.
