OK, that explains why one of my Domain Computers got permission denied, but that raises the other question - why then is a normal user able to access his/her files which live in /srv/samba/users/<username> without any problem? The permissions on /srv/samba (before I added the "x") was rwxrwx--- : root and Domain Admins only have access. So Domain Users were able to traverse the hierarchy but not Domain Computers. Why?
