NTconfig.POL not working for non-admin users

hi! I've tried number of alternatives but never could get policies work
for everyone. When i include a username in the domain admin group (in
smb.conf), policies start working. Where did i go wrong? All of my
ordinary users have unix (spar-solaris 2.6 smb 2.0 alpha) gid 2000.
Should I somehow declare that those users belong to the group Domain
Users? Below is excerpted from the smb.conf file. I don't have any
[homes] section. All the profiles are read from a common directory
\\%L\Profiles\Common. I've checked the logs and found out that smb reads
ntuser.man and NTconfig.POL. For an ordinary user smb gid of 513/7 is
granted whereas for the domain admin group 512/7 is granted. Could
someone help? thanks.

   logon path = \\%L\Profiles\Common
   comment = Network Logon Service
   path = /opt/samba/netlogon
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   share modes = no
   locking = no
   public = no
    path = /opt/samba/profiles
    browseable = no
    guest ok = no
    writable = no
