samba won't start after 11.4 install

I get “unable to open file: /etc/samba/dhcp.conf” messages in /var/log/samba/log.*
worked perfectly fine in 11.3. permissions are 755 on /etc/samba and all files are 644 or 600 in the directory. Starting manually gives same result. My 11.2 and 11.3 machines continue to work.
this is a weird one and I don’t see any posts relating to this. For other uses, the machine seems ok.
Any help?
TIA

If you don’t use that file, remove the entry from [global] in smb.conf (of course, if you do use it, that won’t help help at all lol).

There was a regression with AppArmor on 11.4 that may be causing this. Try
YaST>Novell AppArmor>AppArmor Control Panel>Set Profile Mode and set both
usr.sbin.smbd and usr.sbin.nmbd to complain rather than enforce. See if this
solves your problem.
