The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 13184
systemd should start samba and nmbd only when network is fully set up

sytsemd starts the samba service to early so the MIT KDC can't find any interfaces and fails to start.
We need to wait till the network is up.

The issue is fixed in both 4.8 and 4.9 branches which are the current ones supported by Samba Team. 4.7 is for security fixes only.
Thus, I'm closing this bug.
