[Samba] can't remove groups in AD

I can see, change and set any permissions with getfacl/setfacl.

I can see these permissions in Windows but cannot change some of the
properties. For example I cannot set full access rights for other groups
even if I am the owner of the directory/file. The changes are being
silently ignored. I can (un)check the properties and accept the changes,
but these changes do not take place when I review the properties in
windows or getfacl.
