The netfiles folder is just the parent folder to all of the shares.

I did add what Rowland suggested, however only after adding
ADDOM_CHANGE_IT\administrator to the user.map file, and removing all
groups from Administrator except:
Domain Admin
Enterprise Admins
Schema Admins
Domain Users

It seems to be functioning normally now. I'm able to unilaterally
access any folder regardless of permissions set now, which was the
goal. It may very well have been the other groups added to the
Administrator user, would be interested to have that confirmed. I
appreciate the help and guidance!
