comment Cannot connect to Samba shares after reinstall
Yes. If I could accept two answers, I'd accept your first answer as well. David's answer was the key piece of the puzzle, however.

I don't actually have any GUI for this install, but those instructions could be helpful to others. Thanks for trying to help me step through this.

It wouldn't add with a new user. Turns out deleting the /var/lib/samba/passdb.tdb file allowed me to run these commands successfully.

comment Cannot connect to Samba shares after reinstall
Adding 'valid users = myshareuser' and 'guest ok = yes' does allow the share to be accessed, but with out a password. I was hoping to require password access to at least one of them.

The first line fails with "Unable to modify TDB passwd: NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL!", and the second fails with "Failed to find user myshareuser in passdb backend." (which I assume is because the first failed).

Good links. They have some good info on what an lvm mirror is typically used for. I'll look into how to use mdadm.

I've added links above. I plan to use ext4 but I thought I had to set that up after I mirrored the volumes.
