Cheers Volker

I think I mean share level; 

The server is currently setup with security=share , using smbpasswd and
assoicated files.

I would like to keep those users but also join an AD and allow AD users

You are sure that you mean share level? This is really, really weird
these days.

If you want no-password access for certain shares, for a certain group
of hosts or so, there are other ways to achieve that.
