Maybe my description was not clear. We first see this problem in our production
environment. So I set up a test VM with samba 3.6.25 and 4.4.5 available.
Then I PXE-boot a notebook with Windows PE 5.0 and try to connect to my
test-samba-server. 3.6.25 works. Stopping 3.6.25 and starting 4.4.5: Works fine.

Then I PXE-boot Windows PE 10.0 and make the same test. Now just samba 3.6.25
works. Trying 4.4.5 gives error "System error 58 has occurred."
All tests use the same Samba-cfg-file.
