OK, here it is (it's taken a while as the computer had a Kernel panic
and I had to re-install from scratch!). 

From Windows I can access the share "peter" but not "agent" (I get the
error \\backup\agent is not accessible). Both appear in Windows
Explorer.

I have applied:
chcon -t samba_share_t to the agent path 
setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on 
setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on



# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba,
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
"testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.
#
#---------------
# SELINUX NOTES:
#
# If you want to use the useradd/groupadd family of binaries please
run:
# setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
#
# If you want to share home directories via samba please run:
# setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on
#
# If you create a new directory you want to share you should mark it
as
# "samba-share_t" so that selinux will let you write into it.
# Make sure not to do that on system directories as they may already
have
# been marked with othe SELinux labels.
#
# Use ls -ldZ /path to see which context a directory has
#
# Set labels only on directories you created!
# To set a label use the following: chcon -t samba_share_t /path
#
# If you need to share a system created directory you can use one of
the
# following (read-only/read-write):
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on
# or
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on
#
# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...)
please
# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will
be
# allowed to run them.
# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux
context
# is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v
/var/lib/samba/scripts

# Hosts Allow/Hosts Deny lets you restrict who can connect, and you
can
# specifiy it as a per share option as well

# --------------------------- Logging Options
-----------------------------
#
# Log File let you specify where to put logs and how to split them up.
#
# Max Log Size let you specify the max size log files should reach

# logs split per machine
;	log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
# max 50KB per log file, then rotate
;	max log size = 50

# ----------------------- Standalone Server Options
------------------------
#
# Security can be set to user, share(deprecated) or server(deprecated)
#
# Backend to store user information in. New installations should
# use either tdbsam or ldapsam. smbpasswd is available for backwards
# compatibility. tdbsam requires no further configuration.



# ----------------------- Domain Members Options
------------------------
#
# Security must be set to domain or ads
#
# Use the realm option only with security = ads
# Specifies the Active Directory realm the host is part of
#
# Backend to store user information in. New installations should
# use either tdbsam or ldapsam. smbpasswd is available for backwards
# compatibility. tdbsam requires no further configuration.

# Use password server option only with security = server or if you
can't
# use the DNS to locate Domain Controllers
# The argument list may include:

# use either tdbsam or ldapsam. smbpasswd is available for backwards
# compatibility. tdbsam requires no further configuration.
#
# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. This
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between subnets. Don't use this
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller doing this job
#
# Domain Logons let Samba be a domain logon server for Windows
workstations.
#
# Logon Scrpit let yuou specify a script to be run at login time on
the client
# You need to provide it in a share called NETLOGON

# machine to add or delete corresponding unix accounts

# ----------------------- Browser Control Options
----------------------------
#
# set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a master
# browser on your network. Otherwise the normal election rules apply
#
# OS Level determines the precedence of this server in master browser
# elections. The default value should be reasonable
#
# Preferred Master causes Samba to force a local browser election on
startup
# and gives it a slightly higher chance of winning the election
;	local master = no

#----------------------------- Name Resolution
-------------------------------
# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT
both
#
# - WINS Support: Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable it's
WINS Server
#
# - WINS Server: Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS
Client
#
# - WINS Proxy: Tells Samba to answer name resolution queries on
#   behalf of a non WINS capable client, for this to work there must
be
#   at least one	WINS Server on the network. The default is NO.
#
# DNS Proxy - tells Samba whether or not to try to resolve NetBIOS
names
# via DNS nslookups.

# --------------------------- Printing Options
-----------------------------
#
# Load Printers let you load automatically the list of printers rather
# than setting them up individually
#
# Cups Options let you pass the cups libs custom options, setting it
to raw

#
# Printcap Name let you specify an alternative printcap file
#
# You can choose a non default printing system using the Printing
option

# --------------------------- Filesystem Options
---------------------------
#
# The following options can be uncommented if the filesystem supports
# Extended Attributes and they are enabled (usually by the mount
option
# user_xattr). Thess options will let the admin store the DOS
attributes
# in an EA and make samba not mess with the permission bits.
#
# Note: these options can also be set just per share, setting them in
global
# makes them the default for all shares
