Hi Twan,

Just a short reply, there are much more knowledgeable people here, who 
I'm sure will have many great tips for you, but...:

As far as I understand things, it's not recommended to put your shares 
on the DC's. We have separated the DC's (using kvm) from the 
fileservers, and do not experience any of the issues you describe.

Hopefully someone else will be able to help out more. (but I guess 
they'll need more specifics about your setup, samba version, os, 
sssd/winbind, etc, etc)

I hope you'll be able to resolve the issues you have.
