I used YAST2 and compared smb.conf before and after and here are the

YAST2 added bits and pieces to different sections as follows:

passdb backend = smbpasswd
add machine script =
domain master = false
domain logons = no
ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com

guest ok = no
printable = no

guest ok = no
printable = no

guest ok = no
printable = no

guest ok = no
printable = no

Now "smbclient -L localhost" gives:
frederic@wallaby:~> smbclient -L localhost
Domain=[WALLABY] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.2a-SUSE]
