Windows 7 may not be able to join to a true NT4 domain. However you can
(at least you good) set up a Samba BDC in an NT4 domain and net vampire
the accounts from the NT4 DC. Windows 7 can join an "classic"
domain. Windows 10 can join a classic domain (with signandseal
registry change) BUT you have to disable SMB3 on Samba.
