Solution

  • problem was a missing share (share mount point was not active or mounted due to drives being dead/disconnected) in /etc/samba/smb.conf
  • had to fix it and restart nmbd and smbd manually (restarting samba itself for some reason did nothing).

sudo service nmbd restart
sudo service smbd restart
