Fedora 15 Samba won't start

I recently upgraded my Fedora from 11 to 15. (Yes, I know, I'm a little behind!) I upgraded to 13 first, then to 15. Most everything seems to be working fine, except that samba no longer starts.

sudo /etc/init.d/smb start

gives me this error: Starting smb (via systemctl): Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.

However, there was nothing written to /var/log/samba, and I haven't been able to find where the system might have written more details.

Anyone know what I might do to troubleshoot or fix?

Btw, I also apparently have an issue with nfs, but I don't really use it so I don't really care.

systemctl --failed


nfslock.service loaded failed failed LSB: Start up the NFS file lo
smb.service loaded failed failed SYSV: Starts and stops the Sa

Thanks for the help!
