dit(bf(domain group map (G)))

The map file is parsed line by line.  If any line begins with a tt('#')
or a tt(';') then it is ignored.  Each line should contain a single UNIX
group name on the left then a single NT Domain Group name on the right,
separated by a tabstop or tt('=').  If either name contains spaces then
it should be enclosed in quotes.
The line can be either of the form:

tt(  UNIXgroupname	\\DOMAIN_NAME\\DomainGroupName )


tt(  UNIXgroupname	DomainGroupName )

no it does not mean that displaying profile info isn't supported.
