The problem is that you seem to be running a mish-mash of a system.

Samba is using the uidNumber and gidNumber attributes it finds in AD for 
the users and groups. However there also seems to be NIS involved and 
with the best will in the world, the Samba user 'fred' will never be the 
same user as the NIS user 'fred'. It could be that the 'NIS' user is 
getting different permissions to the AD user.

I do not feel that I can help further because I do not have access to 
your system (nor do I want it). The only further input that I can offer 
is, you need to use one authentication system and I think you know which.
