Seems as though the log entries below were a red herring. After setting 
local permissions to DOMAIN+USER/GROUP I am able to read/write as 
expected from a domain windoze machine. The smb.conf entries required 
the same format of DOMAIN+USER/GROUP in the share block (valid users =, 
write list = , etc.). I did read where this format was to be 
discontinued in smb.conf but apparently not yet.

What puzzles me now is how to provide equal access to files/directories 
for both local users and domain users. As stated, I have setup the maps 
between local and domain groups using "net groupadd", but as of yet am 
unable to provide local write access to files/directories having domain 
ownership and visa versa. Does groupmap not provide this?
