yes,, change the password of the administrator.  ;-) 

and if that does not work, an extra tip, worth a try. 

in smb.conf 
>        interfaces = lo, eno1

try with lo, 

There are know problems with interface detection on some OS-ses.. ( like ubuntu 12.04 ) 
Now i only work ( almost only ) with debian, and im avoiding this by setting ip and not interface name. 
so i dont know if centos also has this problem, but its one thing you can try also.
