Any shares on a Samba AD DC must have their permissions set from
Windows and whilst the local Unix permissions will apply if a user logs
into the DC, it will be the Windows permissions that apply when
connecting to a share. This is one of the problems of using a Samba AD
DC as a fileserver.

You would be better off installing a Unix domain member and use this
for your fileserver
