But using a version of Samba that went EOL 4 years ago is OK ???

Not entirely sure (for either) I just know that at one time Samba didn't 
know who 'SYSTEM' was, but it does now. The present Samba supported 
versions (4.13.x, 4.13.x and 4.14.x) all know 'SYSTEM', so I would 
suggest you upgrade to one of these versions, though this may mean you 
need to upgrade your red-hat OS as well.

Not that I am aware, others may.
