This is in smbd.log:

  Could not find machine account in secrets database: Failed to fetch machine
account password from secrets.ldb: Could not find entry to match filter:
'(&(flatname=BROCKLEY)(objectclass=primaryDomain))' base: 'cn=Primary
Domains': No such object: dsdb_search at
../../source4/dsdb/common/util.c:4733 and failed to open
/var/db/samba4/private/secrets.tdb: NT_STATUS_CANT_ACCESS_DOMAIN_INFO
[2020/07/08 09:46:32.561883,  0]
  task_server_terminate: task_server_terminate: [Failed to obtain server
credentials, perhaps a standalone server?: NT_STATUS_CANT_ACCESS_DOMAIN_INFO

Why was I be told to remove the secrets.?db files if doing that that prevents
the samba_server from starting at all?
