OK. So I assume that since there is only 1 file server then you can
chmod and chown as much as you like. What I can't see is how the uid:gid
pair get over to your Linux clients. Or maybe this is just a file server
for win boxes. . . Is the uidNumber for the user stored in AD perhaps?
And what is the entry you make in smb.conf? Or are these new users in a
new share with new data wih perhaps just their personal files being
transferred from the old server? Guessing. . .

Could you ask the admin to supply a (censored) DN of one of the users
you have just transferred so we can get a better idea?

(Just read the other post about the debian update. Maybe this is now
solved by the downgrade?)
