Well, I have read both the man page (or that bit) and then re-read Luke's
post of Nov 18. No, I cannot say it is clear at all.

Lukes post says that smbpassgrp syntax is :

But man page says its :
UnixGroupName : DomainGroupName

However, Lukes post also mentions that syntax in the paragraph above the
definition of smbpassgrp. Hmm.....

Can we get it a bit clearer ?

For example, to map someone, who is a member of (unix) adm as 
(NT) Administrator would we do this ? :

domain group map = /usr/local/samba/private/smbpassgrp

and in smbpassgrp we have :

adm Administrators

I cannot try it at present as I cannot get the 2.0 beta1 to allow any sort
of NTDomain logon. Works fine if I revert to 2.0 prealpha but that does not
use the new syntax. Why am I seeing reference to 2.0 beta2 in cvs change
log, I cvs'ed only an hour ago and just checked, cvs gets me 2.0 beta1 ! Do
I need the -r BRANCH_WHAT_EVER to get 2.0 beta2 ??
