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

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 = NoneNetwork security: LDAP client signing requirements = Negotiate
See The Solution
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).
