The first thing I would do is to upgrade the OS, I do not use RHEL or 
any of its derivatives, but I believe the latest versions supply Samba 
4.8.3 and this is a lot nearer a Samba supported version than 4.4.x is.

Another question that springs to mind, is sssd installed, if it is, I 
would remove it.
