You probably need to configure Samba separately to perform user
authentication against AD.
You should be able to set "security=ads" in /etc/samba/samba.conf (or
wherever it lives on Ubuntu). There might be a bit more config that's
required depending on your environment (like if the machine is joined
to the domain with "net ads join", etc.) but that should at least give
you a bit of a starting point to google/check the docs.
This isn't something I've done for many, many years and I'm rather
rusty so apologies for not providing more detailed info.
