That is not a supported samba/ldap setup. Nevertheless I have seen this
 some years ago.

post the output of this command, if you are using openldap:
ldapsearch -xLLL '(&(sambadomainname=*)(objectclass=sambadomain))' '*' objectclass

btw, what os do you use, which ldap server

This is also not a supported user configuration. Very early samba 3
releases had supported this. Current samba3 and samba4 do not support
users and groups with identical names. Enhance the loglevels in
 samba and in your ldap server.

Please post your samba3 version: smbd -V

No, we simply dont know how your users and groups are setup in ldap.
Post the relevant information.

acl group control = Yes
in your share definition
