Arch Linux. A little problem since the update from 4.4 to 4.5 yesterday (9/9/16). The samba server will not start now. I have tried downgrading back to 4.4, but then a whole different set of problems occur. I have renamed my smb.conf to smb.conf.old and used the default conf with my own paths (homes and Shares). Various log and test files copied to attachment.
pat@Server:~$ samba --version
pat@Server:~$ uname -a
Linux Server 4.4.20-1-lts #1 SMP Wed Sep 7 22:03:08 CEST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux
It was a package pulled in and updated the same day, tevent-0.9.30. Downgrading to 0.9.29 fixed the issue.
