Ok, so do the following. 

1) login as a user. 
	Open explorer and go to \\servername.domain.tld\sysvol  
	Do the same for \\servername\sysvol  
	Do both work on only one and which one? 
2) login as a Administrator
	Open explorer and go to \\servername.domain.tld\sysvol  
	Do the same for \\servername\sysvol  
	Do both work on only one and which one? 

Of the \\servername.domain.tld\sysvol work 

Try this on you computer, run_as Administrator CMD
sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend=bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start=disabled

Windows 10 will try to negotiate SMB3_11, which apparenty goes wrong. 
So try for now disabling SMB2/3 on the Windows 10 client is your best,
not ideal, option.

Or set the max protocol in smb.conf ( see man smb.conf )
