I'm running a samba AD server in the form of a univention appliance ...

with their latest release upgrade from UCS-5.0-1 to UCS-5.0-2 the samba 
version bumped from 4.13 to 4.16.

furthermore, I'm running commercial NetApp Storage Systems, providing a 
CIFS Server (joined my UCS Domain)

since the upgrade, I have the following problem:

while domain-joined windows clients still can connect to the shares 
provided by the NetApp, non-domain windows clients cant anymore.

they always produce the following error message in the netapps event log 
and report that the domain isnt available right now.

mechtype in NEG_TOKEN_INIT

I'm now asking here because neither Univention nor Netapp seem to want 
to help since they both say that combination is not supported / 
recommended. no reasons given.

I was hoping to get a new idea here...

thanks in advance,
