Rather than show all the various configurations that I have tried to no avail, does anyone have an idea how to define one of these shares?   I want this share to be completely controlled by the AD admin, with little or no intervention from the linux admin providing the SAMBA share.   What linux file permissions need to be set for the share?  Do I need to run setfacl as well?  What statement defs need to be provided in smb.conf?

This will hopefully help you, but the major point is you need to lose 
most of the lines you have added.
