I was finally able to get this to work, but I had to do the following 
(which is not on the main file shares wiki  page):

After making the directory on the Samba member server, I did the 
following (from the profiles wiki page):
chmod 1770 /share
chgrp "Domain Users" /share

Then I'm able to add "Domain Admins" group with full control in Windows 
computer management and from there I'm good.

Should this be added to the wiki?  Or maybe this is a side effect of 
something else I did wrong?
