I *think* setting

    security = user
    server role = auto

makes Samba run as a standalone server, which is fine, because 
authentication is handled via /etc/nsswitch.conf:

   passwd:         compat systemd sss
   group:          compat systemd sss
   shadow:         compat sss
   gshadow:        files

Since you suggested that versions of Samba >= 4.8 must run winbind if a 
domain member, and since the version that works (without winbind) is 
4.8.3, this must be the case, or no?
