cDOT 8.2p4 problems joining AD - (Error: Strong(er) authentication required)

Anyone hit this particular error when trying to join cDOT 8.2p4 SVM to AD (SVM and domain names, username, and IPs blanked out)?

Error: CIFS server creation procedure failed

  [  0 ms] Trying to create CIFS server 'XXX' in domain

           'XXX' for virtual server 'XXX'

  [    24] Found 6 domain controllers through DNS

  [    24] Connecting to LDAP (Active Directory) server

           USER

Error: command failed: Failed to create CIFS server XXX. Reason: LDAP Error: Strong authentication is required.

Found a few similar errors about other LDAP clients that said to set these two GPO configs, but this did not help my problem:

 

    • Domain controller: LDAP server signing requirements = None
    • Network security: LDAP client signing requirements = Negotiate

Re: cDOT 8.2p4 problems joining AD - (Error: Strong(er) authentication required)

Found problem to be this GPO being applied to DCs that we had set to required.  cDOT 8.2p4 does not support LDAP signing (nor LDAP SSL).
