Samba won't start on Centos 7.3.1611

Hi folks,

I've been googling for an hour on this which seems to be awfully
basic. But I cannot find anything definitive.

[root@centos-gig ~]# systemctl enable smb.service
Failed to execute operation: Access denied
[root@centos-gig ~]# setenforce 0
[root@centos-gig ~]# systemctl enable smb.service
Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory

Have tried things like :
chcon -t samba_share_t /home/amckay

Also took the output from:
getsebool -a | grep samba

and set all them to "on"

Stripped my config down to the most basic.

What am I missing?

# Global parameters
[global]
netbios name = centos
security = USER
idmap config * : backend = tdb

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = No
inherit acls = Yes
read only = No
valid users = %S %D%w%S

Does /usr/lib/systemd/system/smb.service exist? It does not look like it
based on the error above.

Does "rpm -V samba" show anything useful?

The selinux stuff means nothing if you have selinux set to permissive.

Is this a standalone server?

Does testparm show any errors?

HTH,

Ug - can't believe it.

[root@centos-gig ~]# rpm -qa | grep samba
samba-libs-4.4.4-14.el7_3.x86_64
samba-client-4.4.4-14.el7_3.x86_64
samba-client-libs-4.4.4-14.el7_3.x86_64
samba-common-tools-4.4.4-14.el7_3.x86_64
samba-common-libs-4.4.4-14.el7_3.x86_64
samba-common-4.4.4-14.el7_3.noarch
[root@centos-gig ~]# yum -y install samba

(and it goes on to install the one missing package)

Not sure how I ended up with everything but that one ... thanks
