Configuring Samba on Mac OS X
Mac no longer uses the open source Samba software to share folders for Windows workstations. It has been replaced by Apple's own Windows file sharing software, which does not include some of the options required to support WindowsHarmony clients.
By default, Samba is not set up to run automatically on Mac OS X.
