Dear mail list, 

I have a Ubuntu server which I upgraded from 11.10 to current LTS 14.4 
running kernel: Linux bgo-nfs01 3.13.0-44-generic #73-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 
16 00:22:43 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. 
Filename: pool/main/s/samba/samba_4.1.6+dfsg-1ubuntu2_amd64.deb 

At the same time the purpose was changed from NFS with Samba for limited 
amount of users to NFS and SAMBA with file shares served to some domain 
Active directory is running on 2 Win2008R8 in 2 different sites. The 
ubuntu server is joined to the domain as domain member server. 
I can only browse shares with users that have smbpasswd in BUILTIN on the 

Error when trying smbclient from different computer 

sk at bgo-vm-101:~$ smbclient -L bgo-nfs01 -U GREENREEFERS\\sktest 
Enter GREENREEFERS\sktest's password: 
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE 

Result from remote computer with user that have local smbpasswd: 
sk at bgo-vm-101:~$ smbclient -L bgo-nfs01 -U GREENREEFERS\\sk 
Enter GREENREEFERS\sk's password:

smb.conf is in below pastebin url: 

Testparm seems OK and I can't identify anything helpful for me in logs, I 
usually fixes Linux related issues myself, but now I am lost.
