Sorry about this, but I am losing the plot here :-)

So, you upgraded from a NT-4 style domain to a Samba 4 AD DC with 
classicupgrade, this AD DC is running on a Debian Jessie machine ?

I take it (hope would probably be a better word) that you are doing this 
in a test situation ?

You have set up a test Unix client using the smb.conf from the member 
server page on the wiki, what version of samba is this running ?

Your users have uidNumbers inside the range set in smb.conf ?
The Domain Users group (at least) has a gidNumber inside the range set 
in smb.conf ?

Your test Unix client is pointing to the AD DC for dns ?

Answer the above and we will go from there :-)
