I'm not 100% sure, but I think "server role =" is only relevant for the
AD DC and all other types are not supported yet. If I'm right with that,
you can use your smb.conf as it was before (check the release notes of
skipped versions for stuff that has changed, like IDmapping syntax in

Can you try it with your old smb.conf or at least without 'server role'.
Or post it and we're having a look at it.
