Eventually you'll have to bite the bullet and modernize your configuration.
I'd say you have until 2020 when CentOS 6 goes past EOL but past experience
has shown that there can be compatibility issues with old Samba versions
and newer Windows clients/software.

Disabling/removing and adding members is rather easy.

samba-tool user disable olduser
samba-tool user add newuser Passw0rd
samba-tool group addmembers sales newuser

Create a basic group policy options for mapping drives, shortcuts,
printers, etc. and it should be touch free on the client side.
