Thank you so much, Rowland.
I disabled the complexity using the command you sugested (just added 'set',
I mean, 'samba-tool domain passwordsettings set --complexity=off').
'smbclient' still works, no surprise here. However I can't test the Windows
login right now. For some weird reason I can't open Windows VMs throught
VPN. As soon as I have some aditional information I will let you and the
About the complexity setting itself, I suppose It turns off the Samba
password complexity verification while re/setting passwords. It would not
be a problem as the software I (will) use to maintain the accounts already
has some complexity rules. I fact, the passwords I have in my LDAP (in the
'sambaNTPassword' attribute) are complex enough to be used by Samba AD.

Thanks in advance, regards.
I have never tried this, but from my understanding, what you have
posted should work. I wonder if it is just something as simple as
the old ldap passwords not being complex enough ?
Try running this on the DC:
samba-tool domain passwordsettings --complexity=off
If this cures the problem, then you have the answer, it is then up to
you to decide how to proceed, stay with the old passwords or make your
users change them.
