You can use 'files' or 'compat', they both mean virtually the same 
thing, just that the latter gives you access to NIS mappings, something 
you do not need with Samba.

As for 'systemd', not sure what this actually does, but when I am forced 
to use systemd (e.g. on my rpi), everything works even though I remove 
'systemd' from the passwd and group lines in nsswitch.conf.
