Per your request

        workgroup = HCCMHMRC
        realm = HILLCOUNTRY.LOCAL
        server string = Samba Server Version %v
        security = ADS
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        wins server =
        default service = global
        template homedir = /home/HCCMHMRC
        template shell = /bin/bash
        winbind enum users = Yes
        winbind enum groups = Yes
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        idmap config * : range = 16777216-33554431
        idmap config * : backend = tdb
        cups options = raw

        path = /home/Intranet
        valid users = @intranet
        read only = No

Not sure what you mean by ACL on the folder but here's this:

drwxrwxr-x   6 apache intranet 4096 Dec 10 14:34 Intranet

Hello Carl,

Trying to get Samba configured correctly.  Am using Active Directory for
authentication and that seems to be working correctly.  When creating a
Share, Security and Access Control list the AD users and groups.  If I take
my name out of the AD group, can't access the share.  Put my name in the
group and I can access it.  However, when I write a file to the folder,
while it shows my username, it shows domain users as the group instead of
the group name.  I had this working on Centos 6.6 and am using the same
instructions this time.  I'm sure I'm missing a setting somewhere but don't
know what.  Haven't been able to find anything on the web that addresses
it.  Any assistance will be appreciated.

Can you please show us your smb.conf [global] and the share config? And
also please the ACLs on this folder.
