Hi, I replied to this post, but my stupid email client did not reply to 
list it replied to the OP and I stupidly never noticed.

Here is my reply to him:

It would seem that you are using LVM, move what you entered up a line, 
you have entered it on the /boot partition, it needs to be on the / or 
root partition. It should look like:

/dev/mapper/server-root /  ext4  errors=remount-ro,acl,user_xattr 0 1

You may have to install the acl package.
I have compiled samba4beta1 on ubuntu 12.04 server but I did not use LVM 
and it provisioned without any fstab alteration.

and here is his reply to me:


I'll give that a try tomorrow.
I thought I had installed with mostly defaults.
If I am using acl I did not actively select this.
I did a list of apps installed and I did not see an acl in the list.
