I don't know  how samba deals with Active Directory. I only use Linux group
and user with samba. Maybe try "@root" for the write list.

Unix permissions do matter ! The samba permissions can only be more
restrictive than Unix permission. it is not possible to make a folder
writable by a group with Samba if this group doesn't have the Unix

For authentication, check your smbpasswd file to verify that each user that
try to access a share as a valid samba account. You can add a samba account
using the command smbpasswd -a myuser. The log file you are looking at is
the good one. You might increase the debug level in your smb.conf.

On my network we have the same account on PCs than on the linux samba server
so we don't have that kind of problems.
