Assign a unix group to the ntgroup as follows:
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=wheel

See if it worked with the command:
net groupmap list

Put the following in the share definition:
vfs objects = recycle
I've never used this so I don't know any more.

When I upgrade to Fedora, my roaming profiles wouldn't load correctly
because there was a bad character in the filename for floppy disk in the
"Send to" folder.  I think it was the "1/2" in 3 1/2" floppy, that got
messed up because of Fedora's use of UTF or something.  Anyway, I just
deleted these from the profiles and they started working again.  Who really
needs to send anything to a floppy anyway?

If you don't want oplocks, then set both of the following in the share

oplocks = False
level2 oplocks = False

Since they are True by default, you can't turn oplocks off without also
turning level2 oplocks off.
