If I do that I can't access the folders (Windows gives a 'cant find' error when browsing into the displayed 'homes' folder, and some 800xxxxx series error).

There is no user with that UID on the Unix server.  All users are under 1000 except for one UID for postfix which is 5000.
I don't see a smbd or nmbd process running if that's what you're asking.
