Under what account are your jobs being run? The local condor-reuse-vmX
account, a fixed domain account or as the submitting user (via a
condor_credd daemon setup)? It looks like Samba is trying to match the
user account for the job against the user account for the file owner and
there's no mapping because it's a local account.

If you're using the condor-reuse-vmX accounts you can use a Samba passwd
file to map them to user accounts like nobody or guest on the Samba
server. Or you can tell Condor to run the jobs using accounts that are
in the domain or Samba passwd file already. Check back to Friday's
emails on the list. I had a conversation about how to set this up.
