Hi Rowland, thanks for your answer.

I don't think so because in "/etc/ini.d" both scripts (samba4 and
samba-ad-dc) exist and are different. The difference is "samba4" does
the check of server role and start corresponding daemons in each case
(samba if it is a DC, or smbd-nmbd-winbind if it is a member) and the
original samba member service daemons are masked as well.

They are. All of them are running as expected.

We chose "linux schools distro" only for samba. We chose it because it
has the latest distribution.
Is there another better distro with latest samba for ubuntu 22.04?
