Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I'm experiencing a very
similar problem right now. When running samba via systemd any access to a
share on a zfs filesystem results in the `make_connection_snum:
canonicalize_connect_path failed for service <share name>, path
/path/to/share` error. Running smbd manually does not have the same problem.

However, when I strace smbd (both under systemd and when running myself) I
can't see any failed lstat calls. As a matter of fact, I can't see the path
to my share anywhere in the trace at all. This is where my problem is a bit
different than yours.

SELinux does not report any errors. So I don't think that's to blame?
I'm running Fedora 30 server and ZoL 0.8.1
