Hi there,

I have a working Samba 4 domain (4.1.5) with several DC's spread over a
global network. They are all based on Ubuntu 12.04. At present the domain
member fileservers for this network are all running Samba 3.4.7 and using
NSLCD and *nix permissions to allow access. This is working nicely.

I am now trying to create a new Samba 4 (4.1.7 Ubuntu 12.04) domain member
fileserver and have been following these guides:


wbinfo and getent all work as described.

All looks good until I get to the section on setting permissions on the
share at which point I get "An error occurred while applying the security
information to: \\SERVER\share  Access is denied"

Has anyone reached this point with similar results? Any help appreciated.
