You probably didn't read the Samba docs first. They are long and
involved, but your having a modicum of knowledge of them would have
prevented this unwarranted posting.

You didn't add the Domain Users group?

There are a couple of other groups you have to add too.  Go away and
read the most of the important docs, and when they don't work, come back
and tell us what and why.

It might help to add your OS/distro  and Samba version.
