I appreciate the contribution.
Here the company carried out a work to migrate the Windows Server DC for Samba 4. GPO settings are the same as we used in Windows Server.
The shared network drive mapping is set by a GPO, which used the "/delete /yes and persistent:no".
The doubts are generated precisely because it did not happen with the DC MS.
The authentication credentials in AD are used only on desktops. In other devices (tablet / smartphone) do not use credentials.
I keep looking for a solution to this issue.
