I will write one more time that I start nmbd after start samba (Samba4 as
DC) and it could work but with one "magic" value set up in smb.conf (for me
it works fine) .
Regarding 137 port at the moment I can' t check out behaviour of
samba/nmbd/137 port and/or whether the port is busy or not because of
"playing" with Samba4 as standalone server. But as I suppose if 137 port
woud busy after samba starting nmbd simply would not start (there would be
error returned) but there works good.
And when I tried some broadcast relay proxies to attach to 137 port (with
nmbd started) I really got message that soft couldn' t binded to the port.
I can provide as my starting script as nmbd log (but in private way) .
