Working on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)

yum list installed | grep samba samba-client-libs.x86_64 4.4.4-9.el7 @rhel-7-server-rpms samba-common.noarch 4.4.4-9.el7 @rhel-7-server-rpms samba-common-libs.x86_64 4.4.4-9.el7 @rhel-7-server-rpms samba-common-tools.x86_64 4.4.4-9.el7 @rhel-7-server-rpms samba-libs.x86_64 4.4.4-9.el7 @rhel-7-server-rpms

However:

$ service smb status
$ Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status  smb.service
  Unit smb.service could not be found.


$ which samba
$ /usr/bin/which: no samba in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)


$ which smbd    
$ /usr/bin/which: no smbd in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)

Is samba installed or not on my system?

Does the system not beeing activated (through subscription manager) have anything to do with samba not loading (although the pacakages seem to be installed)?

In my installation i have this :

yum list installed | grep samba

samba.x86_64                      4.4.4-9.el7                          
samba-client-libs.x86_64          4.4.4-9.el7                          
samba-common.noarch               4.4.4-9.el7                          
samba-common-libs.x86_64          4.4.4-9.el7                          
samba-common-tools.x86_64         4.4.4-9.el7                          
samba-libs.x86_64                 4.4.4-9.el7     

I think you need to install samba.x86_64.

To check if any package is installed or not, use this command

rpm -q samba

here -q : query

It will tell whether your package is installed or not. If not, then install by following command -

yum -y install samba
