In "my" CentOS 7 there are only services smb and nmb. I do not need 
winbind. I use samba with ldap and kerberos. So I use:
systemctl enable smb nmb
systemctl start smb nmb

I use standard samba packages comming with CentOS 7:
# rpm -qa | grep samba

If you have trouble with starting samba there are posibilities to set 
higher log level and then see what happens.
