It might help if you set up smb.conf correctly or are you using sssd ?

Samba 3.6.x died quite sometime ago, it had a quite funeral, no flowers
by request ;-)

If you need help with your zombie, I suggest you ask Centos, or upgrade
your distro.

Or to put it another way, if there is something wrong with your version
of Samba (and I am not saying there is), the chances of getting it
fixed is nil.
