It could be a host of things...
What is the current configuration?
AD server, stand-alone Samba CIFS share, etc?

One issue with 18.04 and Samba AD is that Systemd.resolved and the internal samba DNS server conflict with each other. [Just one example.]
Knowing a bit more about your configuration will be helpful in giving more useful answers.

And have you checked the logs? 
Any error messages?

Descriptions like: "It don't work no more." are not very helpful in general - there's so many ways it could be broken. We can't realistically list them all.
