did some further investigations and found the following:

comment = Backup Verzeichnis
path = /mnt/backup
admin users = DOMAIN+Administrator, root
valid users = DOMAIN+Administrator, root

The administrator of my Windows domain now should be able
to access the "public" share. But when I try to access the
box I am asked for a username and a password.

I found, that getent passwd and group does not list the 
domain users and groups, just my local users and groups
from /etc/passwd and /etc/groups.

Am I doing something completely wrong? I used the doc from:
