You really mean **share**'s permission or files's permission in the

If former, simply to grant full control to "Domain Users" by
Administartor from Windows or using sharesec command.

If latter, "dos filemode = yes" may help you.

"inherit permissions" takes precedence over "inherit acls" so 
in your conf, "inherit acls" is ignored.

I think that "map acl inherit" is too buggy to use in production.
