Brief description of the problem
Samba will not start. No configuration changes, other than regular updates as released.
I am very unfamiliar with linux. Very novice. Any assistance anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
This only occurs from the Services screen. If I start Samba from the Samba configuration screen, Samba starts as expected.
Detailed step by step instructions to reproduce the problem
Starting Samba service, the following error.
