 From Samba 4.11.0, SMBv1 is turned off by default, you can try turning 
it back on by adding:

server min protocol = NT1

to your smb.conf

If this fixes your problem, then you must understand that your network 
is now insecure and you should remove the XP machines as soon as possible.

If it doesn't fix the problem, then revert the change and consider if 
this is actually a problem with the XP machines.
