On the 7th July, Microsoft released a large update, KB5028166 (this also 
seems to have different identities on different Windows versions), after 
the update there were numerous Samba problems, mostly to do with trusts 
and authentication. an interim patch was quickly produced and this seems 
to have mitigated the problem.

I would suggest that upgrading Samba is probably your next step, but you 
will probably have to upgrade to bullseye or bookworm.
