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

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

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).

Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Domain controller: LDAP server signing requirements
