Public bug reported:

Even though nmbd and smbd are running after boot, Samba service is unavailable.
ps axf |grep mbd
2467 ?        Ss     0:00 smbd -F
2469 ?        S      0:00  \_ smbd -F
2478 ?        Ss     0:00 nmbd -D

Samba does not allow connections from other systems and nmap from
another system does not list ports 139 and 445 as open.

Restarting both nmbd and smbd after boot makes Samba service available and nmap now shows ports open:
139/tcp  open  netbios-ssn
445/tcp  open  microsoft-ds
