That debian fix doesn't address this issue unfortunately.

We can use systemctl is-enabled smbd.service for this.

Quick test:

        # reload the samba server
        # We don't necessarily have the samba package installed. #414841
        if systemctl is-enabled smbd.service --quiet; then
                systemctl reload smbd.service

I just have to understand if we can use systemctl all the way here, or if I have to check for sysv, upstart and systemd, and choose one.

This bug was fixed in the package samba - 2:4.5.8+dfsg-2ubuntu2

samba (2:4.5.8+dfsg-2ubuntu2) artful; urgency=medium

  * Add extra DEP8 tests to samba (LP: #1696823):
    - d/t/control: enable the new DEP8 tests
    - d/t/smbclient-anonymous-share-list: list available shares anonymously
    - d/t/smbclient-authenticated-share-list: list available shares using
      an authenticated connection
    - d/t/smbclient-share-access: create a share and download a file from it
    - d/t/cifs-share-access: access a file in a share using cifs
  * Ask the user if we can run testparm against the config file. If yes,
    include its stderr and exit status in the bug report. Otherwise, only
    include the exit status. (LP: #1694334)
  * If systemctl is available, use it to query the status of the smbd
    service before trying to reload it. Otherwise, keep the same check
    as before and reload the service based on the existence of the
    initscript. (LP: #1579597)
  * Remove d/p/fix-1584485.patch as it builds a broken pam_winbind
    module. There is a fixed version of that patch attached to
    #1677329 but it has not been vetted yet, so for now it's best
    to revert (again) so that pam_winbind can be used.
    (LP: #1677329, LP: #1644428)
