Normally I would have said yes, but not with the smb.conf the OP was 
using, it was just too borked.

If it had been a simple standalone server, then yes

If it had been a proper Unix domain member against an AD DC, then yes

If it had been Samba properly set up against IPA, then probably yes, 
don't really know, I have never used IPA, never felt the need to ;-)
