Even if it's not our goal to help people moving from Samba to Windows,
it might be a bug in Samba that prevents that the records are created
correctly during the Windows DC join. If a user runs both, a Windows and
Samba DC, it can happen that the Samba DC is temporarily offline and in
this case the user expects that clients can continue logging in.

Some further questions to the OP:
* What Windows Server OS version did you joined _first_ to the Samba AD?
* What other Windows Server OS versions were joined to the AD while
Samba was still part of the AD forest?
