I checked my entire setup again and again. Now I can see the my share. The
most relevant change I did (afaik - ofcourse):
- since I am using ad backend I created dedicated unix admin groups (as
recommended in the docs)
- I removed the $ from the share section/defnition ([projects$] ->
- I changed browseable switch from 'no' to 'yes'

Iam still getting the "event viewer cannot connect..." Error. Probably this
natural, because it is a linux host.
