Your clients may need some special registry entries, and the server  
should use

        max protocol = NT1

(which is the default).

Did/do the clients work with Windows 7 or Windows 8? These versions need  
more registry entries than Windows XP, and Windows 10 needs again some  
more entries.

Windows 10 clients can work together with Samba 3.6.x, actually I have  
no older Samba version.

Viele Gruesse!
