Have a Samba AD DC running 4.13.2 and a fileserver running 4.9.5 that is joined to your Samba AD domain.
Yes and now if I need to add permission on folder 

	chown	Name:smbadmin	/home/Userhome
	chown invalid user: Name:smbadmin

this machine are join to AD, and the Computer Object are visible, please i need here little update.

Fileserver smb.conf
	/shares/Userhome# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
	        realm = CARAG.LOCAL
	        security = ADS
	        workgroup = CARAG.LOCAL
	        server role = member server
	        vfs objects = acl_xattr
	        map acl inherit = yes

	        path = /shares/Userhome/
	        read only = no

so the rights are need to pick up from my AD.
Thanks and best regards

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.

The structure is entirely up to you

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

Try reading this: 

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