If the Kerberos protocol is not negotiated for some reason, Active Directory uses LM, NTLM, or NTLM version 2 (NTLMv2).
some reason =  \\ip\share )  and if you hostname (+search domain) and hostname.domain.tld and PTR resolving does not work correct, 
yes, then you have this problem .

And in this case, windows fals back to NTLM and then you accessing the server as user guest. 
You can try the GPo setting : 
Network security: LAN Manager Authentication Level setting to Send NTLMv2 responses only. 

But this was already in the links i did send you. 

But i suggest you fix you dns resolving. 

I can say. 


These all work for me. ( samba 4.5.x and samba 4.6.x on all DC and members )
