  I direct connect to Samba AD DC server and run smbstatus :

Samba version 4.13.13-Debian
PID     Username     Group        Machine                                
    Protocol Version  Encryption           Signing
297104  EXAMPLE\pc-ijurisic$ EXAMPLE\domain computers 
(ipv4: SMB3_11           -                    

I think output smstatus need to be:
Username: EXAMPLE\ijurisic
Group: EXAMPLE\domain users
Machine: EXAMPLE\pc-ijurisic

But I have:

Username: EXAMPLE\pc-ijurisic$
Group: EXAMPLE\domain
Machine: computers

If I run smbstatus -u EXAMPLE\ijurisic or smbstatus -u ijurisic got 
blank list on my server.

Very strange.
