You posted your smb.conf file, it showed this:

workgroup = AD

Then it showed this:

idmap config adlocal : backend = nss

'AD' != 'adlocal'

This could be bad sanitisation, because what you set as the 'workgroup' 
value should be the same as the output of 'wbinfo --own-domain'. You 
should also set the same name in the idmap config lines.

If your NetBIOS domain name is 'AD', they should look like this:

idmap config AD : backend = nss
idmap config AD : range = 1401-2147483647

You will also need users in AD with the same name as local Unix users 
stored in /etc/passwd

I only mentioned sssd because that was one of your 'invalid users'
