Bolted cantilever beam problem

Ok, so I know I did stuff like this back in school, but I'm getting nonsense answers now.


I have a beam with one end bolted to a wall and one end supported on a roller.  I can get the total bolt shear load easy enough and the roller reaction.  I need to know what axial forces will be induced in the bolts by the bending stress in the beam though.  I know that it will net zero, but I also know it's not so simple beacuse I get crazy big numbers.


Thanks in advance.
