Is this using the ZFS filesystem ?

If so, how ?

What do you mean by 'a prebuilt samba410-4.10.13 package was installed' ?

Did you provision a new DC or join an existing domain, or something else ?

Samba installs the required files at provision or join, provided you 
tell samba-tool to do it.

It isn't really Samba's responsibility, it is yours, but if you didn't 
do it at provision or join, then you can run 'samba_upgradedns'.

One thing I should point out, Samba isn't aware of Bind 9.14 (yet), so 
when it comes to the named.conf that is created for you, use the last 
version (9.12) instead.
