[Samba] Grant only one AD group to samba share ?

Unfortunately neither suggestion worked

chgrp still just says "invalid group"

valid users  = @"DOMAIN\\My Group" behaves the same as I described in the OP.  Valid credentials = access denied ; invalid credentials = invalid name or bad password.    I already tried all sorts of things in valid users, but nothing is the magic string I need. 

Any other ideas?

Thanks for the help so far, much appreciated!!

Sorry. I forgot about winbind (we use nss-pam-ldapd). With winbind running that should read:

chgrp MYDAOMAIN\\My\ Group /media/share
