I believe that all but the most recent versions of OSX require that SMB signing be disabled (or at least set to "if client agreet" rather than mandatory). You'll find this policy in Group Policy under Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options.

Macintosh users also need to be configured with non-expiring passwords, as the Macintosh doesn't know how to handle the "User must change password at next logon" flag and will simply return an "access denied" when they try to log in.

Hope this helps.
