[Samba] Unable to drag and drop files into share

Single server with Samba 4.3.11. 

Since when we changed some shares with a richer permission set users are unable to drag and drop files into the share. They can create files, rename and delete them, but d'n'd isn't working. They never had problems in the past, it began recently. Unfortunately I cannot tell exactly what has been changed as it's administered internally and they won't recall.

The same happened to me on another server with the same setup (and versions) but much simpler permissions.

Share and samba config below. Access control is set on Windows to domain users, security tab has the relevant groups.

Any idea what could be the problem?

        server services = s3fs, rpc, nbt, wrepl, ldap, cldap, kdc, drepl, winbindd, ntp_signd, kcc, dnsupdate
        realm = domain.lan
        ldap server require strong auth = no
        netbios name = SERVER7
        workgroup = DOMAIN
        server role = active directory domain controller
        log level = 5
        idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        ea support = yes
path = /shares/UT
read only = No
