Hi again,

First, i revert to a snapashot with samba 4.7.7 and upgraded it to 
4.7.8. I got no issue with my settings and "testparm" outputs as 
expected. Next i tried again upgrade to samba 4.8.3. But i got the same 
error like an email before.

Yes i guess its a problem that "tesparm" cant read the registry. When im 
removing "include = registry" and add my global and share information to 
smb.conf on each node, testparm shows me NO more error. But i dont want 
to mange each smb.conf manually.

Its pretty weird, i guess the registry is still working fine because im 
able to add, remove and list options with "net conf". Everything looks 
good at first glance.

Is it maybe only an issue of "testparm" in samba 4.8.3?

How do i use "Samba/ctdb debug packages"? I compiled SAMBA from source 
(./configure --with-cluster-support 
--with-shared-modules=idmap_rid,idmap_tdb2,idmap_ad) and start the 
daemons with:


/usr/local/samba/var/run/ctdb/ctdbd.pid start
exit 0


Thy for your help!

Best regards
