If the change occurs, but you get the 'error' message before, then you
can ignore the error, it is being caused by the differences between
Samba AD and windows AD.

If the changes don't work, can you try the following:

Run the 'net rpc rights list privileges' command on the Unix machine
that holds the share, this will confirm that 'Domain Admins' has the
required privilege.

Change the group ownership of the share i.e. from the wiki page:

chgrp 'Domain Admins' /srv/samba/Demo

Now try again from windows.
