If you are using ubuntu 14.04, you can install samba 4.1.6 with apt-get, 
this will get you an init-script. If you want/need a later version, you 
would need to compile it yourself (in which case, you wouldn't get an 
init script), find a ppa or change OS to debian wheezy and install samba 
from backports. this will get you 4.1.11 and an initscript.
