I suggest you go and ask PBIS, Samba does not produce PBIS and does not 
(cannot) support it. Further, that smb.conf is not for a Unix domain 
member, you are, in my opinion, running Samba in an unsupported way.

i think your problem when you tried to update to Samba 4.8.x was caused 
by the fact that in a domain, from 4.8.0 , you need to run Winbind and 
as you say, you are not doing this.
