Is the top shared folder (the one specified in path = ..... ) set to
2770 root.groupname where groupname is a 3rd group in which :users and
:amd users are in?

Have you set
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 2770
in smb.conf for the top level shared folder?

You didn't specfify many details, so if the setgid trick doesn't work
for you, then try the brute-force "force group" parameter in smb.conf.
