[Samba] Samba4 as AD DC, with one anonymous read-only share

Hello all,

I have several Samba4 DCs that host various production shares. I need 
one share, however, available as a read-only guest share (anonymous) 
that will be used as a software distribution share point. I have been 
unable to make it work (the servers prompt me for a valid username and 
password on that share).

I have done some googling and it seems that this functionality might be 
broken at the moment (search results are almost a year old). I'm 
wondering if any of you have run into a similar situation and have some 
kind of solution.

Note that I am using the acl_xattr vfs module, but I am loading it only 
on the read-write shares (defining it on a share by share basis), so I 
would imagine that wouldn't be causing an issue with my anonymous share.

Thoughts? Help is appreciated.
