Well Ubuntu may be supported until 2021, but Samba 4.3.x went EOL just 
over 2 years ago, the only support you will get is from Ubuntu and 
probably will only be for security releases.

The latest Samba version is 4.10.6 and there have been numerous updates 
since 4.3.11, but you shouldn't be having the problem you have, so lets 
start be you posting your smb.conf
