My preferred method whenever touching /etc/fstab is to:

# mount -fav

And look for errors. The "-a" is for all file systems, "-v" is verbose, 
and "-f" is for "fake" (don't do anything).  It's a good way to check 
that the box will come back up properly after a reboot.

After fixing /etc/fstab, you can:

- Stop the Samba4 service(s)
- umount /path/to/filesystem
- mount /path/to/filesystem
- Start the Samba4 service(s)

Or as you found:

mount -o remount,rw,noatime,user_xattr,acl /path/to/filesystem

I suggest stopping Samba4 before changing mount options.  It may not be 
100% necessary, but better safe then sorry.
