I have successfully set up Samba on other OSes with other (prior) versions but I’m encountering the exact same issue you are with nearly the exact same setup/configuration.  Is this something to do with the 4.17.5 version, or did you determine it is unique to your setup?  I’m wondering if downgrading the Samba package is an effective way to work around this.

Just another couple of thoughts, what is the uidNumber set on the user 
getting this message in the logs, is it outside the DOMAIN range set in 
smb.conf ?
Can you raise the log level and see if anything helpful pops out ?
