that's typical the issue if the running smbd version does not match the
module version on the disk. You need to restart the service manually or
set the auto-restart-on-update option in /etc/default/sernet-samba

If restarting the service by using the init-script does not help, you
can try to kill all smbd processes, make sure that all are away and
restart the service again.

Best regards,
