Someone has used Windows srvmgr.exe or an equivalent tool to
set a security descriptor for IPC$ in the file
share_info.tdb. Either connect to the Samba server with
srvmgr.exe and set the correct permissions on IPC$, or if
all your access checks are done via 'valid users' and other
setings in smb.conf, then you can safely delete the file
share_info.tdb. But please be aware that this resets all
custom share security descriptor settings back to default.
