[Samba] Public shares possible on 4.0 AD DC?

Our environment is 3 x AD DCs running Samba 4.0.19. I'm trying to
present a public share from one of these, but the client always asks for
username/password when I try to connect.
I've got "guest account = nobody" and "map to guest = Bad User" in the
[global] settings, and "guest ok = Yes" in the [sharename] settings, as
per most of the guides I've seen online. According to testparm,
"security = USER" is set by default as well, but I've also tried setting
it manually, to no avail.
Is there a special trick to make public shares work on Samba 4 AD DCs,
or is it just not possible because of the domain permission model? Any
suggestions would be much appreciated.
