Ah, I think I understand where we differ, you are talking about ACLs
and I am talking about ownership.

I am suggesting using a group that isn't 'Administrators' or 'Domain
Admins' to be the Unix group, this would then allow 'Administrators' and
'Domain Admins' to own things in sysvol. If the new group is given the
'SeDiskOperatorPrivilege', then members of that group could make the
required changes to the ACLs from Windows. 

Or to put it another way, replace 'Domain Admins' with the new group
wherever it appears on this wiki page:
