[Samba] Can't write to share.

HI all,
Having fixed the group issues from solaris having a default max of 16
groups I can now locally create and delete files on the solaris box as a
domain user
However when accessed via samba I can not create new files/folders
(although I can delete the files I created when logged on locally)
I have created a temporary directory on a non zfs (non acl enabled) file
system to see if that was causing issues with the same result.
I'm starting to pull my hair out on this and I'm sure its a simple
(Solaris 10 update 4, Samba 3.0.25c (bundled Sun package))
