I have attempted to install samba36 on a base install of FreeBSD 9.2

I have installed this same package about 30 days ago and had no problems what so ever.

after the install, I add the line to FreeBSD /etc/rc.conf file - samba_enable="YES"

Reboot the server and an error appears - WARNING /var/db/samba is not a directory

I make the basic smb.conf changes like I have always done and I cannot browse shares 

I scan the server IP for ports 137-139 and they are not open and neither are the services running.

What happend to this port for FreeBSD???

I have tried 4 times with fresh reloads etc and always get the same result.

Thank you
