Is this on the DC or the domain member ?
Are the groups in /etc/group or in AD, if in AD, does the group 
'digimag' have a gidNumber attribute contain '20008' ?. If in both, I 
would suggest removing from /etc/group
You could do worse than having a look here:


There is also a vfs module available for Macs, vfs_fruit, never used it 
myself (no apple machines) and I am not sure which version of Samba it 
first appeared in, but it is in the free version available from Sernet. 
You might like to investigate this vfs module.

Provided everything is set up correctly, it should work, perhaps your 
PAM isn't setup correctly.
