Are you restart smbd and nmbd after make changes in the smb.conf ?
I have same problem under Fedora C3 and Samba version 3.0.10-1.fc3,
when I start for first time samba with default smb.conf.
(I don't used samba service before on this computer).
Then I make same changes:
and expecting that service shares will work without restart the smbd
and nmbd (/etc/init.d/smb restart).
parse the shares and parameters of smb.conf without warnings.
I test locally with
#smbclient -L localhost
But shares is not shown in the output, only smbclient "said" that
Samba is running.
After I manually restart the demon smbd and nmbd, then the shares
I hope this help.
