Should have read your post first, Mike before replying.
Got ahead of myself. One thing to note is that if you
were using the force group to ensure that all files and
dirs created were owned by that group, this will no longer
be the case with the force group = +groupname, as anyone
NOT already a member of that group, when they create a file
or directory, it will be owned by whatever home group that
user belongs to... This may not be an issue for you, though.
Hope this helps,

Put a '+' in front of smbadm, that should get the desired effect
you were looking for:
force group = +smbadm
That means the user has to already be a member of smbadm for their
group to be changed to smbadm when accessing this share.
