[Samba] Few questions about members

We are experimenting with two different scenarios here. The one I'm 
asking about this time is this:

We have a samba4 AD set up. It seems to be fine as far as we can tell. 
We are trying to set up a member, and have followed the wiki page 

The first question I have is why is the start script we use on the AD 
not work on the member to start samba? It appears we need to start the 3 
individual daemons instead of being able to use the init script listed 
on the "get a start script" page.

Second question. We have a Windows XP machine that runs the 
administration stuff from Microsoft. We do not see the shares we placed 
on the member.

Being a real inexperienced Samba user, I'm not sure what to send or even 
if I'm asking the right questions.

Thanks for any assistance.
