I take it that means you have a Samba AD DC running 4.13.2 and a 
fileserver running 4.9.5 that is joined to your Samba AD domain.

Slight problem, it looks like you want to set the owner to 'Domain 
Users' and the group to 'smbadmin', I take it you really meant 
'smbadmin:Domain Users', as a group cannot own things on Unix.

As I said, the actual structure is up to you, but I wouldn't set it up 
under one share, I would  use a share for each directory

It may help if you can post the smb.conf files you are using.
