[Samba] sys_setgroups failed on Solaris 11

Thanks for the feedback. This is not a testing environment. We deployed the Samba AD environment for our office PCs about one year ago. I am now trying to get the Samba file sharing into AD.
We use our mixed Linux/Unix environment heavily. All permissions and ACLs are set in Solaris using NFS4 ACLs on a ZFS filesystem. Our users are in active directory but the groups are not.
My understanding is that Winbind lets Linux see the users & group membership in AD, is this correct? The groups we have in AD are defined for use with GPOs. All file permissions are set on the filesystem directly. Our current Samba 3.6 file server seems to map my user "Samba teddy" == "Unix teddy" which is what I'd like for AD. Somehow just use "AD Teddy" = "Unix teddy" and give my Samba account the same access to the files that Unix teddy has.

Did you actually read the OP's smb.conf ?
It is for a Unix domain member and the OP has explicitly set 'server
role = standalone server' and the wrong winbind backend for a Unix
I am also unsure, but I think he may be trying to use the users in the
ldap machine in AD, this is never going to work.
I hope he is just testing at this time, if he is , I would suggest
upgrading Ubuntu to 18.04 and provision Samba on the DC again, but this
time read this first:
Then setup a new Unix member server following this:
Migrate all the users and groups from the ldap server (or carry out a
classicupgrade, see here:
