I agree. Yet it does. I just did the tests on https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/File_System_Support , which went successfull, so my EXT4 volume has the necessary attributes activated. For Samba there must exist a difference in between my root volume and my data volume.

This is my smb.conf currently:

# Global parameters
netbios name = LX01
realm = DOMAIN.COM
workgroup = DOMAIN
dns forwarder =
server role = active directory domain controller
idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/domain.com/scripts
read only = No
path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
read only = No
        path = /data/smb/data
        read only = No
path = /test
read only = No
