I want to limit access to the shares on the server to a select group of users. What is the best method available to accomplish this? Is it simply a matter of creating a local group, and then mapping it to an Active Directory group, or is there a better method?

Accepted AnswerNick martinOfflineMake sure the machine is in your local DNS . This also requires a reverse PTR record.
Make sure the /etc/network/interface file is set up as follows::
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.2.[proper number which is in DNS]
Make sure /etc/resolv.conf contains the following::
search <your local domain>
nameserver <your local DNS server>
Make sure Ubuntu sources are set up to include the "Universe" repository. Then install the following packages::
Configure /etc/samba/smb.conf . Key thing is to add domain.
