Thanks Rowland.

Do a mixture of PDF and ADS-DM it is not my intention.

If it looks like this, is just because, many years ago, I have configured on PDC something wrong and now, when I have put a new server member with samba 4.x, I'm trying to understand what. 

My intention was (and is) configure a PDC server (I have do that many
year ago) and some member server.
All work fine with other member servers with samba 3.x, The problem
(stop auth after 7 days) occur only with member server with samba 4.x

Ok, this is a good howto, I will try to apply it in a few days.

But, for example, I have never use /etc/samba/lmhosts, this for me is a
news, everything in this two lan, with one PDC, 3 member server samba
3.x and 20/40 windows (xp to 10) clients, has always work fine from
some years with this configuration.

If someone have some suggest how to modify my smb.conf, please let me
know, I try to apply some modify get from howto and our suggestions in
a few days and let you know.
Many thanks
