This means that your smb.conf is using a deprecated option, what you 
need to replace this with, will depend on just how you want to run samba 
(as a standalone server, Unix domain member etc).

Probably because it seems to be so old, CTDB became a part of Samba when 
Samba 4.2.0 was released, can I suggest that you read our documentation 
until better help turns up ;-)
