If AVAHI is running on any Unix machines, it can get in the way, so as
I said, you would be advised to turn it off.

Possibly not, '/var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb' is the path to 'sam.ldb'
if you compile Samba yourself. It may (and probably will be) in a
different place if you are using OS packages
i.e. /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb on debian

You should also replace 'rowland' with the full user logon name.
