one another problem I noticed:

the log is full of such msg

[2015/04/04 21:14:23.510893,  0]  
   Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name DOMAIN<1b> for the  
workgroup DOMAIN.
   Unable to sync browse lists in this workgroup.

may be the reference to workgroup DOMAIN in smb.conf of FS has to be removed?
