is it on dana canfield's TODO list?

no it isn't.  dana, can you put "add a 'map groupname' smb.conf parameter
which does what map username does, but for unix->nt groups, instead?" on
the "medium priority" TODO list?

wheuuur!  what???  woke me up, there, for a minute.  yes, we may have a
bit of confusion where all users in "domain admin users" get mapped to the
same RID...

hm.  i seem to have made a mistake.  it is used in two places.  one is in
"name_to_rid()" where this converts _user_ RIDs to DOMAIN_USER_RID_ADMIN,
and also in "get_domain_user_groups()" where this converts _group_ RIDs to


AH!  try this:

"domain groups = admins".
