Samba 3 and Samba 4 currently have different options that they
understand in the smb.conf file, so you should not use the same
smb.conf file for both of them.  Use e.g. /etc/samba/smb.conf for
samba 3 and e.g. /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf for samba 4.  Also,
make sure you do not run smbd or nmbd etc. from samba 3 on the same
machine as "samba" from samba 4 (unless you really know what you are

I'm not sure if it's supposed to be able to show the information in
the Server and Workgroup sections.  Perhaps someone else can comment
on whether this should currently work for a Samba 4 server.
