Is it a standalone AD server or a member of a domain?

If it is standalone, how did you join the Windows workstation to the 
domain?  How did you create new users?  Are you using those new users on 
the Windows workstation?

If it is a domain member, how did you join the AD domain?

No, that's normal.  An ext4 filesystem supports permissions, and you 
must manually set them to allow users to write to the new filesystem.

You may have to deal with SELinux labels at some point, but at this 
point, I suspect your problems are more fundamental.
