Try running 'samba -b' this will show you where the AD DC expects to 
find things, you should be able to work out from there what needs 
changing on your system.

's3fs' depends on posix ACL's and as far as I am aware freebsd doesn't 
use them, everything does work on Linux which I suppose is Samba's main 

'ntvfs' was created in the early phase of Samba4, but was ultimately 
dropped in favour of 's3fs', I understand it was dropped because of the 
amount of work that was required to complete everything it was designed 
to do and a lack of time (or something like this).
