This is not error - we may disable winbind service, but users need it will be confused...
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 ?
winbind is sysvinit service, not systemd (my mistake).
Maybe that is what should be fixed, moved to systemd.
Maybe we can provide some basic configuration for winbind by default?
In Fresh R4, we have migrated to samba 4 and systemd scripts. Winbind starts and works fine with the default configuration.
