As I said, I have never used 'copy', but the error message you are 
getting, says it all, there is no path statement in the template so it 
is unavailable.

The documentation you used is very old and things have changed since it 
was written, it may be that it worked as shown with Samba 3.x, but as 
you have found, it doesn't seem to work now. Does it work if the 
template is given a path statement ??
