Contrary to best practices, on my boxes I'm always root so it is doing this when run as root. I'm getting the error for the daemon also when run as a system service in systemd.
Here is the command run with -d3:
#> ./samba -i -d3
lpcfg_load: refreshing parameters from /etc/samba/smb.conf
samba version 4.11.2 started.

Unable to create directory /var/lock for file msg.lock. Error was File exists
exit_daemon: daemon failed to start: Samba failed to setup parent messaging, error code -1073741801
Could be the /var/lock thing but the directory exists and with root privileges it should be able to create msg.lock. Not sure why that is happening.
