[Samba] problems with initial install, simple server config

Hi list, 

  I'm attempting my first ever install of Samba4, my requirements are
pretty simple: I just need the quickest easiest way to get a standalone
server for use as a Windows file server with password aging and password
complexity rules. 

My OS is FreeBSD 10.2 running on ZFS, samba from binary package

I've had a google for some guides and I've been using the steps here: 


However when I run the interactive provisioning I'm getting this error
when provisioning as a DC: 

Setting up self join
ERROR(<class 'samba.provision.ProvisioningError'>): Provision failed -
ProvisioningError: Your filesystem or build does not support posix ACLs,
which s3fs requires. Try the mounting the filesystem with the 'acl'

If I try provisioning as a standalone I get no errors but after
provisioning Winbind doesn't seem to work. Ie: 

[root at samba1 ~]# wbinfo -p
Ping to winbindd succeeded
[root at samba1 ~]# wbinfo -u
Error looking up domain users
[root at samba1 ~]# wbinfo --user-info=andys
failed to call wbcGetpwnam: WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND
Could not get info for user andys 

Grateful for any advise, 

thanks, Andy.
