Description jas 2017-01-03 13:28:26 UTC
In my smb.conf I have:


[global]
config file = /xconf/samba/smb.conf.%h

... to handle having various samba configs for different machines in a directory that is shared by all Samba hosts.   Unfortunately, "samba" won't start because it expects to see "server role = active directory domain controller" in smb.conf.  It would see that if it followed through and read smb.conf.<host>.
To my knowledge, my use of smb.conf.%h should work.
