Samba4 PDC & Samba 4 SDC and random problem with windows client wanting to join domain

Im using Ubuntu 14.04.01 with samba4 4.1.6 version on both PDC and SDC.
There was a ADDC Samba4 break, and I put up new PDC and added SDC in case of dns coruptions that was present on out productive DC.
I readded by hand all those machines that where in old domain and migrate old account on those
machines to same name account on new DC.

Alot of win7 pro machines readded and migrate without problems, but few
of them when trying to add to domain said that Administrator account is
bad (password?), but when adding win7 and asked for account name that is
used to add computer to domain and typing administrator at domain.local and
password from domain adding successed.

After adding that machine using the @domain.local workaround, none of domain account works (they dont exist)
DNS on that machines points out on PDC, tried with SDC too, and both.

I did try to change SID of adding computer but didnt help, is it a 4.1.6
bug which was fixed? There is no way to add those machines to AD Domain.

This is only problem that I had with Samba in our Enterprise Envirement with about 100+ windows machines.
