You have turned ACL's off on the 'sambaDisk' share by setting 'vfs 
objects = acl_xattr' in global and then 'vfs objects = shadow_copy2' in 
the share, try setting 'vfs objects = shadow_copy2 acl_xattr' in global 
(where it will affect all shares) or in the share (where it will just 
affect the share).
