This is great news. I can confirm that this is working here for me too.
After changing to max protocol NT1 I restarted samba on my PDC. But 
immediately afterwards a domain logon from win10 was not possible. I 
tried it twice (still the old error message) but than was interrupted by 
a phone call. After the phone call (~2min) it worked without changing 

Regarding the switch to NT1. This does not make me really happy. I tried 
domain logons with win7 and 8.1 using a user with a profile containing 
lots of small files. It takes longer on win7/8.1 to login/logout now. 
Its about 1.5 times slower in my case. (My PDC
is also hosting the windows profiles.)

Is this going to be the permanent solution? Or is this just 
intermediate? Has MS changed/extended something in smb2/3 that samba is 
yet not aware of or is it maybe "just" a bug in sambas implementation?

Anyhow: I am glad that samba works now with windows 10. THANK YOU!
