My test systems are OpenVZ containers running on a Squeeze machine. 
Their primary file system 'simfs' doesn't support acl or attr. But 
samba4 requires these properties, even if the machine is no file server. 
So I mount an external xfs into this machine at /srv/files and chose 
that as root.

The production system will be an LXC running on a Wheezy server, which 
should not suffer from these problems.
