Hi Jelmer,

The init script check which mode is being used, and only runs in the relevant

>From debian/samba.samba-ad-dc.init (the other have something similar):

case "$1" in
	    SERVER_ROLE=`samba-tool testparm --parameter-name="server role"  2>/dev/null | tail -1`
		if [ "$SERVER_ROLE" != "active directory domain controller" ]; then
		    exit 0

So you either get something like (non ad mode):

[ ok ] Starting SMB/CIFS daemon: smbd.
[ ok ] Starting NetBIOS name server: nmbd.

Or (ad mode):

[ ok ] Starting Samba AD DC daemon: samba.

The stop script always stop all of them, because this is necessary when the
config is changed from one mode to the other.

In my test setup, I test the following for every commit:

- install samba 3.6 from unstable
- add user
- read homeshare (with smbtar)
- upgrade to samba 4.0 (my git build)
- read homeshare
- provision AD DC
- restart samba
- recreate user
- read homeshare

All of this seems to work.
