No, samba-tool is only used with AD.

As far as I am aware, the standalone server hasn't changed that much 
between 3.6 and 4.9 (both of which are EOL as far as Samba is 
concerned), so your method probably should have worked.

What OS are you using ?

Have you checked the file ownership on the files you copied ?

What is in your smb.conf ?

I take it that it isn't so much getting Samba to work, it is the file
