Hi Andrew, 

Thanks you for your answer. I put the log in a more recent mail in this topic. Here is what I have : 

Processing section "[global]" 
doing parameter netbios name = DMZRODC 
doing parameter realm = ADS.MYDOMAIN.BE 
doing parameter server role = active directory domain controller 
doing parameter workgroup = MYDOMAIN 
doing parameter log level = 10 
pm_process() returned Yes 
lp_servicenumber: couldn't find homes 
added interface eth0 ip= bcast= netmask= 
Netbios name list:- 
added interface eth0 ip= bcast= netmask= 
exit_daemon: STATUS=daemon failed to start: Failed to create session, error code 1 

Thanks !

You have shown log.samba but not log.smbd or log.winbindd. I suspect 
the reason they have exited is in those logs. 

Essentially it is failing one of the startup checks, probably one 
common to both smbd and winbindd, these usually show up pretty quickly. 

You could try running them manually JUST AS A TEST with the 
--option=server role check:inhibit=yes 
option just to see what it hits directly to the console. 

I hope this helps,
