    Don't know why it doesn't work for you, but experiences in the past show that sometimes some lock file goes out of sync. The remedy is to symlink /opt/var/run to /var/run. In that case every lock is reset on boot.

    rm -rf /opt/var/run
    ln -s /opt/var/run /var/run
    reboot

    Don't know about the 'utility app'. Never used it.

    I see I made a typo.
    ln -s /opt/var/run /var/run
    should be
    ln -s /var/run /opt/var/run

    If that doesn't help, try to look at the output of the start script:

    /etc/init.d/samba.sh startup

    maybe i have a special config
    Do you? How is your config special?
