Dear Nathan

I can see inside your smb.conf file, you does't have a

security = domain

and others helpfull configuration.

Following to these lines, I copied my smb.conf file , I hope this will be 
helpfull for you.

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.
#======================= Global Settings =====================================

    workgroup = NSA
    netbios name = NSA
    name resolve order = wins host bcast lmhosts
    server string = Samba PDC Server

#security issue, only the host on the sub-net will can logon
    hosts allow = 10.0.32. 127.

# if you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
    printcap name = /etc/printcap
    load printers = yes
    print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r -P%p %s
    lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq -P%p %s

    queuepause command = /usr/sbin/lpc -P%p stop
    queueresume command = /usr/sbin/lpc -P%p start

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print system type unless
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print systems include:
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx, cups
    printing = bsd

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
    max log size = 50

# Security mode.
