HI, Samba ships a default smb.conf, this contains lines referring to the
server role and a default line 'server role = standalone server'.
In 'man smb.conf', there is this about 'server role':
This option determines the basic operating mode of a Samba
and is one of the most important settings in the smb.conf file.
The default is server role = auto, as causes Samba to operate
according to the security setting, or if not specified as a
file server that is not connected to any domain.
I do not think 'server role' should be set anywhere except on an AD DC,
the attached patch removes the lines.
