Just a minute ! I have Samba4 4.1.8 which shares folders on NTFS
mounted partitions.
And as I understand Samba4 provides access to such shares.

So, tell me how or what way is OS connected with serving this shares ?

What or hiw is OS taken part in it ?

By the way, if Samba4 acts as DC, nothing else is needed. All works
fine without additional activity.
