Here is the smb.conf:

# Global parameters
	workgroup = LOCAL
	netbios name = SSRV01
	server role = active directory domain controller
	server services = s3fs, rpc, nbt, wrepl, ldap, cldap, kdc, drepl, winbind, 
ntp_signd, kcc, dnsupdate
	idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
	# dos filetimes =yes
	# dos filetime resolution = yes
	# no effect, so commented:
	# fake directory create times = yes

	path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/local.domain/scripts
	read only = No

	path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
	read only = No

        comment = Software needs fixed creation times
        path = /home/share/software
        read only = no
        force create mode = 777
        valid users = a1, a2, a3
