OK, I now have Samba running on a Centos 7 VM and I am having the same
problem as the OP, I get asked for a password, whilst if I connect to
a Devuan Samba server, I get connected without the password. I have
setup Centos exactly as the Devuan except for PAM, which is totally
different from Devuan.
Devuan uses pam-auth-update, which works with Samba being
in /usr/local/samba and only changes files in /etc/pam.d.
Centos uses authconfig, which seems not to work with Samba being
in /usr/local/samba and wants to change multiple files.
Lets see if I can sort out Centos PAM ;-)
