[Samba] startup script for debian missing


I want to run samba (compiled from source) in Devuan 2 (like Debian but without SystemD).

The start scrip from the wiki page does not exist
-> Not Found (The requested URL /gitweb/ was not found on this server)

So I installed the default samba package from Debian, copied /etc/init.d/samba-ad-dc, and then uninstalled samba again (because it is a very old version).
Then I updated the paths in that script:

However the command "chkconfig samba-ad-dc enable" fails (command not found). With other commands suggested from variouos web pages I got lots of errors like "insserv: warning: current start runlevel(s) (empty) of script `samba-ad-dc' overrides LSB defaults (2 3 4 5)."

Finally found this solution:
update-rc.d samba-ad-dc remove
update-rc.d samba-ad-dc defaults

Now it works.

I hope somebody finds time to update the web page, otherwise it is now at least documented here.
