The only other possible problem I can see is 'invalid users = root', 
this is meant to be used in a share and you have it in [global].

You could also check what you have in /etc/krb5.conf and if 
/etc/resolv.conf points to your AD DC. You could also check if the 
firewall is running and if so, is it blocking a required port, you could 
also check selinux.
