Not sure where to go from here, if I run the command I get this:

pi at raspberrypi:~/tests $ net rpc rights grant "SAMDOM\Unix Admins" 
SeDiskOperatorPrivilege -U"SAMDOM\Administrator"
Enter SAMDOM\Administrator's password:
Successfully granted rights.

There isn't anything wrong with your smb.conf, so can we confirm a few 
things, perhaps there is something we missed ;-)

can you post the contents of the following files:





The output from the following commands:

hostname -s

hostname -d

hostname -f

hostname -i

hostname -I

What OS is this ?

What version of Samba (if unsure, 'smbd -V' will tell you)

Is Apparmor or Selinux enabled ?
