See log:

"Winbind is not configured in /etc/samba/smb.conf, not starting

This is not error - we may disable winbind service, but users need it will be confused...
Comment 2 Alexander Burmashev 2013-03-25 18:21:34 MSK
Actually i think winbind can be setup as disabled by default and only enabling samba service will enable winbind, what do you think about it ?
Comment 3 Aleksandr Kazantcev 2013-03-25 18:26:58 MSK
winbind is sysvinit service, not systemd (my mistake).
Comment 4 Alexander Burmashev 2013-03-25 18:28:24 MSK
Maybe that is what should be fixed, moved to systemd.
Comment 5 Denis Koryavov 2013-03-25 18:47:00 MSK
Maybe we can provide some basic configuration for winbind by default?
Comment 6 Denis Silakov 2014-09-19 11:18:36 MSD
In Fresh R4, we have migrated to samba 4 and systemd scripts. Winbind starts and works fine with the default configuration.
