You can reference Windows users in smb.conf but you need to configure
Samba with Winbind. See the Samba how-to at

I am new to samba and I wasn't sure that I understood something
correctly.  I can set the "invalid users" setting to limit users to a
group but can I use windows groups in this setting and if so how do I
reference them.  I see how to do linux groups and nis groups but I
didn't see for windows.  Thank you for any help.
