You're only having Windows DCs left?

May I ask why you migrated from Samba AD to Windows?

It sounds like the _ldap DNS record is missing, Windows uses to locate
the DC. Can you please verify that all required _ldap/_kerberos records
exist in the correct zones. For some examples, see:
or because you are no longer a Samba user: ;-)

If all required records exist and logging in still fails, I continue
guessing that it is DNS related:
- At least one of the Windows DCs runs a DNS server?
- The clients are using the DNS on the Windows DC?
  Test by running on a client
