Hi, Yes but what is the server ?

Anyway after a quick scan of your smb.conf, you have these in the global 

    hide dot files = yes
    posix locking = no
    follow symlinks = yes
    wide links = yes
    invalid users = root

These should only be in a share

also there are these:

    passdb backend = tdbsam
    obey pam restrictions = no
    unix password sync = no
    wins support = no

You might as well remove them, they are all the default settings.

Apart from that, the smb.conf looks good to work with either a samba4 AD 
or windows Server.
