That didn't work.
I've patched util_pwdb.c to the german names, but it more or less the
same behaviour as with english names.

I test for Administrator privileges by looking into control panel,
so I guess this shows me if I have local Administrator rights.
(How do I test for domain admin privileges?)

ntadm = SGS\Administratoren in the local group map file
where ntadm is the primary group of my admin account,
I can log in to the domain SGS, but have no administrator rights,
ntadm = BUILTIN\Adminstratoren  
I can't log in and log.smb tells something about 
"primary group not in domain"

When I put my admin account in an other primary group and add it
to the ntadm group in /etc/groups I can log in, but it doesn't work neither with
ntadm = SGS\Administratoren
nor with
ntadm = BUILTIN\Administratoren
inathe local group map file.

Any ideas?
