Is 'active (exited) Since <date> 2 minutes ago' a correct status for SAMBA?

  • Hey, I think I need help with samba.
    I just set up a openmediavault distro. 32 bit version, because my hardware does not support 64 bit.
    It's in my old PC, I can ping it from windows PC, I can ping windows PC from that.
    I can access it trough HTTP (port 80), the web panel.
    I can also connect to it by SFTP, upload and download files.
    I have created a Share folder, enabled SMB.
    But.... I can't connect to network drive from Windows (Windows 10) directly, I can't map it, it is not visible in Network at all...
    Workgroup is the same in settings.
    I can't even access it by typing IP/share name directly in Windows explorer.
    I started suspecting that it might be a Samba issue, because Windows 10 firewall is off.
    I typed systemctl status smbd to check the samba status and got that:


    Code
    smbd.service - LSB: start SMB/CIFS deamon (smbd)
    Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/smbd)
    Active: active (exited) since Sun 2019-09-29 11:43:21 EDT: 2min 48s ag
    o Process: 80B ExecStart=/etc/init.d/smbd start (code=exited,status=0/SUCCESS)

    So, is this a correct status for Samba?
    Is something wrong with my Samba? Or why can't I connect to it?


    PS: I am using windows shares with QNAP NAS without any problems with the same PC for years, I only can't connect to my new machine with openmediavault
