Hi Marc,

Thank for your answer.
So, I started samba directly and I get 1 samba process and 2 smbd child process.
For the log, where should I see ? In /var/log, I have a folder called samba, containing (with others...) log.windbind and log.wb-WORKGROUP . Is it one of these ?

What are the samba logs saying?

Did you start the 'samba' binary? Or 'smbd'? Normally you should see 
some samba and some smbd child processes running.
