Please don't put this explicitly in Samba, it's quite inappropriate
and varies far too much between OSes.

What you could do is have a option:

  os serices = /etc/services.conf

then that file would contain a line per service like this:

  inetd "Internet super daemon" /etc/rc.d/init.d/inetd

and the specified script would be run with "start", "stop", "restart"


please don't put any _specific_ services in Samba.
