PDS is  a typo - sorry!
Should be PDC (primary domain controller)
And thank you for your hints - I'll try them and will report results

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.

Next, go and read:
