That is the very thing I didn't want ;-)

I am now thinking that what you posted earlier is your actual smb.conf
as on disk.
If so, what did you do, go through 'man smb.conf' and think 'oh, I like
that' and added it to your Samba AD DC's smb.conf ????

To put it another way, it isn't really recommended to use a DC as a
fileserver, but sometimes you have to, but if you do use a DC as a
fileserver, you have to be aware of the limits.

You have gone way past the limit, totally ignored all warnings and
the fact that you cannot use posix acls on a DC share. You should
read these:


Most of the rubbish you have added to your DC's smb.conf should be
removed. If you really want to use some of the settings, add a Unix
domain member and use this as the fileserver, but I would still use
Windows ACL's
