Again, please show the smb.conf, you may remove shares etc, but leave at least one good share example.
Anonimize it, but we need it, to tell more or give beter info.
Now its a guessing game. (sorry)

Ok this makes it a bit stranger, so we now need and the member smb.conf and the DC smb.conf.
Sorry but its really needed.

Now if you create a new setup based on debian, i suggest, use debian stretch.
Then Go here and read the howtos.
These steps should work on jessie also, but i really suggest move up to debian stretch.
Of if you willing to tryout, if its the 4.2 thats really the problem.
Test if its the 4.2 thats the problem, for Jessie: 4.5.8-x
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list
For a 4.5.14 also add this line:
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian jessie main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list
Or for a 4.6.8 for jessie, also add this line:
echo "deb http://apt.van-belle.nl/debian unstable main contrib non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/van-belle.list
And the key.
wget -O - http://apt.van-belle.nl/louis-van-belle.gpg-key.asc | apt-key add -
