I ungraded my Linux Operating system from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to 8.04 LTS
Samba will not start after an upgrade to 18.04. My samba is running as
an NT style member server server with smbd nmbd and winbindd all
running. None of them will start.
It worked this morning.
This morning it was running Version 4.3.11-Ubuntu
This afternoon after the upgrade it's Version 4.7.6-Ubuntu
The logs in /var/spool/samba are empty.

The information on all three processes is virtually identical.
testparm gives a few warnings but it's been doing that for a while with
no apparent problem See below.
