You are talking about samba3 and samba4. Can you please let us know the
exact version numbers, because, for example, Samba 4.0.0 was released 4
years ago and 4.5.2 is less than two weeks old. And Samba 3 versions
were shipped between 2003 and 2015. Detailed version information are
really helpful, because a lot of things were changed and parameters may
have new defaults meanwhile.

You are talking about "windows domains", so I guess that you are running
Windows DCs and your RHEL servers are just AD domain members.

Please give us some more details about the environment and let us see
your smb.conf file. I'm sure this helps a lot to find an answer. :-)
