The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3604
The smbd can't start with cups when the port 631 is used by another daemon.

I find a problem about the initialization of smbd with CUPS.
If the port 631 is already used by a daemon(except cupsd),
the smbd stops in the initialization.
-> recv() <--- STOP
If the port 631 is already used by another daemon,
And the recv() is executed in cupsDoRequest().
As a result, the smbd waits some responses forever.
What are you running on port 631? The current behavior is
by design. I don't see any timeout mechanism in the cupsDoRequest()
call. You will need to file an issue with the cups developers.
I disabled the cups service.
And the NFS(rpc.rquotad) used the 631 port which is assigned by portmap by chance.
It caused our problem.
I filed this issue to CUPS's bugs.
Port 631 is a "well-known port" reserved for use by IPP servers only. Your NFS(rpc.rquotad) shows "illegal" behaviour in occupying that port
