so in the end, it seems like I solved it on my own. All I had to do was
to add "vfs objects = posix_eadb" option into the config file so now the
share definition looks like this.
path = /data
read only = No
create mask = 660
directory mask = 2770
vfs objects = posix_eadb
So far so good, hopefully it will run alright in the future as well.
I hope this solution will help someone with the same problem.
