[Samba] Samba as fileserver on Active Directory domain

We have a Gentoo box running Samba and is a member of the Active
Directory domain. This Gentoo box will be a fileserver when everything
is completed and setup as it should. I want our users to login to their
computer (Computers are all members of the same Active Directory domain)
using Active Directory accounts/domain for authentication. I am using
Winbind for Active Directory authentication/integration. I'm almost done
except file permission issue. All is working smoothly (ie. wbinfo,
smbclient, getent, etc.). I can access/map the shared drive on the
Gentoo box from any Windows computer, login to a machine without a
problem using Active Directory accounts. The Active Directory
authentication with Winbind is working as it should.
For some odd reason, I can't figure out how to give permissions to all
users the ability to make changes/add new folders on the shared drive.
I am getting access denied even when the users or group are valid users
of the shared drive per smb.conf. Below is my smb.conf shared
comment = shared
path = /shared/drive
read only = no
inherit permissions = yes
create mask = 755
directory mask = 755
valid users = @"MYDOMAIN+mygroup"
browseable = yes
writable = yes
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
