3.6 is really old and unsupported. That a Windows update break 
compatibility may happen. I would try it with a supported version.

However, your smb.conf doesn't look like it is from an AD domain member. 
E. g. I miss the "realm" parameter, and "security" should be set to "ADS".

Can you please check your setup with our domain member documentation:
(Please note that the doc is valid for the supported versions. I'm not 
sure if it is compatible with a 5 year old Samba version)
