I am getting this when trying to run testparm and I'm also unable to start the samba daemon. I am trying to set up a AD DC. This is a fresh install of CentOS 7 minimal with the dependency script from the wiki run. The version is 4.11.2 and was successfully compiled. I believe the two issues are related but I'm unable to find anything on google that indicates what could be the problem. 

When running the samba daemon with -i this is the output I get: 

exit_daemon: daemon failed to start: Samba failed to setup parent messaging, error code -1073741801 

CentOS 7 Minimal 
All dependencies installed via script from the wiki 
Compiled from source 

# Global parameters 
dns forwarder = 
netbios name = DC1 
server role = active directory domain controller 
workgroup = CORP 

path = /var/locks/sysvol 
read only = No 

path = /var/locks/sysvol/corp.example.com/scripts 
read only = No 

Any help would be appreciated.
