This does not go to the samba-ntdom list, first want to make sure if
I understand this right (logic and English).

That meas that as an additional step in the PDC setup procedure you should
verify your groups and for instance do a remap of all users that happen
to be group names, eg. like this:
> cat maps/domainusers.map
This step would be essential for different OSes like Solaris where the
/etc/group file starts like this:
And at least "root" people are going to use as "Domain Administrator".
Did I get this right?
