Its a PITA, but it does work. Load a options to watch out for. "Real"
NFS is WAY easier to configure.

I use it all the time, have done for business aswell as lab work.
Your usermapping is incorrect.
Also, by default, windows [Active Directory] has no knowledge of groups
as in the *NIX sense.
So you need to change from "domain users" to your group that you defined
on AD in your OU.
I can send you screenshots if you like as to how it should be
configured. Lemme know.
Has umask capabilities too so it works exactly like a *NIX box.
e.g.: Doze domain user "conor", group "nos" is mapped with NIX NIS
domain conor - UID 501, GID 507, groups mapped same way.
Doze user accesses doze share. Fine, as per normal CIFS access.
Then NIX user accesses via NFS same share, has correct rights. If you
are having only anon acess, then your config is bad.
