Do not create a new NT4-style domain, they depend on SMBv1 and this is 
going away

Do not post the output of 'testparm -v', it outputs EVERYTHING, your 
settings and ALL the default settings. Either post the output of 'cat 
/path/to/smb.conf' or the output of 'testparm'.

Just about all I am going to comment on is the above, your netbios name 
and hence your computers hostname is too long.
