I suggest, if you on debian stretch, change to samba 4.6.7.
See my apt: http://apt.van-belle.nl

And yes, send me the screenshot. I'll have look. 
Because this should work fine on debian, except you are missing a few good patches. 
These are in debian testing 4.6.5-8 and in my packages.

If you dont want to move to 4.6, you can try my 4.5.12 packages. 
Which also contains some good fixes. 
Most are winbind related, for more info about that, 
compair the debian changelogs with the samba changelogs. 

Did you reboot you server already and did you try to kinit Administrator and kdestroy and reboot.
