Sorry to be so long in replying, just a couple of comments about your
smb.conf. You are running Samba as a standalone server and I do not
think you need any more than this in '[global]':
workgroup = peers
netbios name = SHS1
security = user
unix password sync = yes
cups options = raw
printcap name = cups
printing = cups
You also probably do not need '[homes]' & '[users]', they do virtually
the same thing.
Coming back to your original problem about SIDs, How are you creating
the users and groups ? and where ?
Are you using anything else with Samba (sssd for instance, I cannot see
why you would, but stranger things have happened)
The thing is, you usually do not care about SIDs on a 'standalone
server', you connect as a user with password and that's it.
