[Samba] Sysvol not accessible?

I am having a strange issue at one location which is running samba 4.1.
Two or three PC's out of maybe twenty-five are unable to get to the
sysvol share. If I run "gpupdate" on the systems it gives error 1058.
Digging deeper says the path was not found, but if I click on the path
in the event log it pops right up in notepad (gpt.ini). This tells me
that the user accounts can access said location. I have done "samba-tool
ntacl sysvolreset" on both DC's to no avail.

What I have noticed is that "Domain Computers" is not listed on the
sysvol share. Is this correct? I believe it has admins, authenticated
users, system, and one other, but I am not in front of the information
right now. I need to know what should be correct for the sysvol so I can
verify that this is correct, before the issue spreads. I feel the issue
is a Windows bug, but I have to be sure before I go down that path.

After resetting the ACLs I did notice that the UNIX permissions were 770
on the sysvol dircetory. Is that correct? Also, what information should
I post and I will get it ASAP. Thanks in advance for any assistance you
may offer.
