[Samba] Cannot access a share outside a share after upgrade

I have a share that I can only access as root that has a few symlinks in it to make it easy for me to access files/dirs.
I used to be able to access before upgrade to 

  [root] #>smbd -V
  Version 3.5.4-0.83.el5_7.2

Now it simply displays an error "Access denied"

I have in the smb.conf file the following:

     path = /THIS_IS_MY_PATH
     valid users = @domadmins
     admin users = root
     read only = No
     create mask = 0660
     force create mode = 0770
     directory mask = 0770
     force directory mode = 06770
     browseable = No
     follow symlinks = yes
     wide links = yes

and in /etc/group


I have not changed any other setting after upgrade of samba, nor have I changed file/directory permissions.

Any ideas anyone?
