I had huge trouble to get the samba server started after I ported it onto a CentOS 7 machine. I tried to start it with systemctl start smbd nmbd winbind samba and it failed without error messages. So I has asked a question on the Samba mailing list. They told me I should do this as systemctl stop smbd nmbd winbind samba systemctl disable smbd nmbd winbind samba systemctl mask smbd nmbd winbind samba systemctl unmask samba-ad-dc systemctl enable samba-ad-dc systemctl start samba-ad-dc Can you confirm, you start this with systemctl start samba-ad-dc thanks -- Jobst Schmalenbach Sendmail administration is not black magic. There are legitimate technical reasons why it requires the sacrificing of a live chicken.
