Well, the first thing you did wrong was to follow that webpage, it was
borked when it was written and it is even more borked now ;-)

It doesn't even tell you to install the 'attr' package, it doesn't
tell you how to configure smb.conf correctly or show you an example.

You can obtain Samba 4.9.4 packages here:


In the mean time, can you post the contents of the following files:

/etc/samba/smb.conf (with all the commented lines removed)

What packages did you actually install ?

Webmin is okay, but the 'samba' part is a bit old.
