Your computer appears to be a Unix domain member and if you read
the 'invalid users' part of 'man smb.conf'

You will find that '+' means look in the Unix group database
(/etc/group) and '@' means look in the NIS database.
As your computer is a Unix domain member, neither of these will be
used and 'Inherit-Group' should exist in AD.

There is another possible problem (it could a typo), you posted this:

    workgroup = SBX

and also this:

    idmap config TESTAD : backend = rid
    idmap config TESTAD : range = 10000-999999

'TESTAD' should be 'SBX'

Can I also suggest you read this:


That is a much better way of doing what you require.
