OS X Server upgrade, Windows cannot access shared folders

I was running OS X 10.6.8 Server on a mac mini and decided it was time to upgrade. I upgraded to OS X 10.10 and then installed Server 4.0.3. The upgrade went great no issues everything is working and kept all settings. However now it seems that my Windows 7 and 8 machines cannot access the shared folders on that Mac, all my Mac systems can access them just fine. I have checked and SMB is enabled, and when I go to connect from a Windows system it pops up with the credentials window and none of the usernames or passwords work? Has anyone ran into this?

Check your Windows system's registry and see if the LmCompatibilityLevel in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\lsa set to "1".

Either delete it or change it to "3" and see if that fixes it.
