[Samba] Eventlog not viewable from Windows in domain member config

I've configured a domain member server using version 4.4.7 on FreeBSD. I'm able to manage groups and shares from the Computer Management tool on a Windows 2008 server, but when I connect to the samba member server the following error occurs:
Event Viewer cannot connect to computer 'XXXXXX'. The error reported is : The RPC server is unavailable.
Clicking OK allows me to proceed.
To get rid of the message I've tried configuring an event log and saving a message. Accessing the log information locally using eventlogadm seems to work. Using rpcclient I can get the number of log entries. Other commands don't generate errors but don't output any information. Running rpcclient eventlog commands with debug 10 shows a lot of appropriate looking activity.
Running a packet trace while loading the event viewer on the Windows server shows registry queries but no event log specific DCERPC request.
Here's my smb.conf file:
printcap name = /dev/null
load printers = no
strict sync = yes
reset on zero vc = yes
deadtime = 15
hide dot files = no
force unknown acl user = yes
guest account = guest
kernel oplocks = no
log level = 1
eventlog list = Application Security System
logging = syslog file at 0
vfs objects = zfsacl streams_depot
nfs4:chown = yes
ea support = yes
streams_depot:delete_lost = yes
store dos attributes = yes
veto files = /:STREAM/
registry shares = yes
idmap config * : backend = autorid
idmap config * : rangesize = 1000000
idmap config * : range = 1000000-19999999
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 01775
security = ads
workgroup = DVTAD
realm = DVTAD.LOCAL
Thanks in advance for any pointers you can give.
