In Samba4 this is quiet different then in samba 3. Use the Microsoft ads tool to administrate 

Step 3: Configure home shares of the users.
This was the greatest try and error. Since samba3 this changed. And it is not the same in samba4!!!
A simple:

       path= /home
       read only=no

This is all.
All other ACLS is setting from the tool Active Directory Users and Groups
within windows.
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers. 
In the Details pane, right-click the applicable user account, and then click Properties. 
In the Properties dialog box, click the Profile tab. 
Under Home folder, type the directory information: In my case 
\\your.domain\homes and the tool will make  the users directory, settings 
 the correct rights.

It's currently best to use smbd for file and printer sharing (except
for netlogon and sysvol shares as far as I know).  The best way to do
this at the moment is probably to have a Samba 3 member server serving

I only use Samba for authentication, so I haven't tried the different
file serving options with Samba 4.

This is another thing being discussed on the samba-technical list wrt.
releasing Samba 4.0.0.
