Well, I googled for a fair amount of them and this one had a fair amount of comments to it, which proved useful as I encountered some of the errors and was able to learn from them. Also, I was able to add my own solutions to other people's problems, which I like. In that way it becomes a community driven How To. In my experience those work out better often.

OK - I did not find that on https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_a_Share_Using_Windows_ACLs . I suppose it should be added to that howto. 

Can I simply copy the ACLs of "netlogon" or "sysvol"?

Good point, I don't have that. I suppose I miss a pointer record for the server then.

Ha, you are now referencing to the page I just mentioned. It does not mention setting ACLs, which should be added I suppose.
