please excuse my bad english. But I am not a native speaker.

I installed samba 4 (DC) like this description 
http://tobs.tips/_doc_/ProxMoxDoc/07samba/ on a new Debian 9 System.


* apt-get install samba

* service samba stop

* rm -f /etc/samba/smb.conf

* samba-tool domain provision --use-rfc2307 --use-xattrs=yes --interactive

with no error-massages I try to start samba 4 via "service samba start". 
But now I get the error message

Failed to start samba.service: Unit samba.service is masked.

What should tell me that?

Google finds that:



But I didnĀ“t understand it.

What is to do to run my samba 4 dc Server?

Thank you!


P. S. My System is a LXC Container based on Proxmox.
