[Samba] Active Directory share strange issue

As a test, I recreated my AD-DC in another VM and it works just as it
did before. I can browse via \\server or \\server\share. I re-used the
same sources that I used before for the now non-functional DC.
I initially followed the AD how-to on the samba wiki, and didn't do
anything with nmbd, and I don't use network neighbourhood, so am unable
to tell you whether it was listed there or not.
Given that it worked before and works on a test machine, I'm leaning
toward something changed in my machine that broke it. Unfortunately
whatever is broken is blocking Group Policy and other functions. I know
it shouldn't given I can browse directly to shares and see the actually
policy but it does break it. Editing the policy from group policy
tools, give me a file not found error, and all the test clients have
group policy errors because they can not find it..
