[Samba] can't access shared folder from windows machine

Our domain controller is samba on FreeBSD server. I administer internal Linux server with samba installed on it too. When I share folder on my internal server, it's visible and mountable by server itself, but can't be accessed from windows machines in the same subnet. I get error: "Failed to get configuration information from domain controller. It's not accessible." May be that there's some kind of conflict between my samba and FreeBSD' s samba? Here's my configuration file:
