If both machines are using the same krb5.conf, then this isn't likely
to be the problem. If you insist on running 3.6.23, then you will
probably need to contact Red-hat support, 3.6 has been EOL for quite
sometime now as far as Samba is concerned and your problem isn't
likely to be fixed by Samba.
There have been very many changes in Samba since 3.6.23, so I suppose
the easiest fix would be to upgrade your Samba on the RHEL 6.8 machine.
