[Samba] Migrating to Samba File Server- WERR_ACCESS_DENIED, Access Denied

I finally resolved my WERR_ACCESS_DENIED using rpcclient setdriver 
command, and maybe my resolution can help you.

I'm using security=ads and winbind for full integration with Active 
Directory on the Windows 2003 server that acts as the domain controller, 
and the peculiarities of the problem as I was experiencing it are due to 
that security mode.  If you're not using that mode, then the solution 
below probably does not apply.

In order to actually write anything the user had to be explicitly 
allowed in smb.conf in the form of DOMAIN\username and I had to 
authenticate as the user DOMAIN\username and, of course, the password.  
When I tried plain old "root" and the root password, I still got the 
WERR_ACCESS_DENIED error and only when I switched to DOMAIN\username was 
I successful.
