OK, first make your Samba Active Directory DC smb.conf look like this:

     workgroup = MYWORKGROUP
     netbios name = FILESERVER
     server role = active directory domain controller
     dns forwarder =
     idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
     template shell = /bin/bash
     template homedir = /home/%U

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

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

         comment = Datenverzeichnis
         path = /d2/Daten
         read only = No
         hide unreadable = yes

NOTE: you really shouldn't use '.local', if this really is your TLD,
then stop Avahi from running on the DC.
