Go to to Diagnostics / Information and click on "MS Domain". The information should include stuff like "Join to DOMAINNAME is OK" and you should be able to see imported users.

If that works your AD connection is probably fine, which means you have permission issues on the shares.

In that case and if you can't access the share, your best bet is to set your domain administrator account as owner of the share, to begin with. Enable the SSH service, SSH to the machine and go to the place where you have your file shares mounted, probably " cd /mnt/poolname" (with your own pool name, obviously) and do "chown -R administrator sharename" where sharename is the dataset where you have your files.

You could also use the Advanced / Command function, I suppose.

After that, I'd go to a Windows machine/server in your active directory and open the Computer Management program, in Administrative Tools (at least on server 2008 r2). Go to the Action menu, select "connect to another computer" and put in the name of your NAS4Free. Then you can go to System Tools, Shared Folders and see your shares and set proper permissions on them from the familiar Windows end.

At least that's what I'd try.
