[Samba] share permissions

I have a share setup on a Samba 4.0.8 / CentOS 6.4 box that is 
successfully replicating with a W2K3 server.  I'm following the HOWTO 
here: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setup_and_configure_file_shares

	path = /home/me/mytestshare <-- with or without trailing slash
	read only = No

On the W2K3 box, I can browse to \\newdc and I see my test share listed 
there.  I can also see it if I connect to newdc in Computer Management. 
  However, what I can't get from either of those places is a Security 
tab if I right-click the share and go to Properties.  There's a Share 
Permissions tab in CM only that says that Everyone has Full Control. 
Despite that, if I try to double-click the share in Explorer, I get:

\\newdc\mytest is not accessible. You might not have permission to use 
this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find 
out if you have access permissions.

Access is denied.


My account has all privileges I can think of, including the 
SeDiskOperatorPrivilege as laid out in the HOWTO.

Even if I chmod 777 /home/me/mytestshare I get this error.

What am I missing?
