OK.  What you are saying doesn't make sense to me.
Can you please give me some mroe details?  Was the actual
smb.conf modified on disk?  Or did testparm output report
this as "include = smb.conf.public.UNKNOWN"?  The latter
would make sense as there is no client operating system
when checking smb.conf with testparm.
