We have another outdate Debian server with samba 3.5.6 with security = Domain. That was configured really long time ago.

I can understand that its EOL but any clue about why I am getting this kind of error?

So it has never worked, what were you using previously ? There must
have been something, or you would not be using an EOL Samba version on
an LTS version of Debian that is very close to being EOL.
