Sorry, should've realized more information was warranted. 
Fortunately though, we managed to figure it out using a couple of different guides. 
Amongst other things, I was missing a few key lines in the samba.conf file (specifically 'idmap config * : range' and 'template shell'). 

I'll try to be more diligent for future posts.

You've not mentioned the OS you're running for the server, the 
particular release of Samba 3 and Samba 4 you're working with, nor 
precisely what you see in the logs. Please post those to get a better 
idea if it might be a known, and already fixed problem.
