Hi Andrei,

i am not sure i can help you, but i know domain user and domain group 
are represented as form like:

DOMAIN/user or DOMAIN/group

on samba site.

What is your "log level" in smb.conf ?

I recommend you to have a look at the logfile(s).

In my case:

tail -f logfile is the first utility if something goes wrong.

Try to locate the error message.

We use samba 3.0.31 in security=ads mode and vista(with and without SP1) 
in one domain and it works.
