The usrmgr does not really work good with 2.0.5a. lot of RPC
is only in the current HEAD code. 
You also said, that you are using plain text passwords. That tells me
that your linux is not running as a PDC (they must be encrypted), and 
usrmgr needs a PDC to work.

domain group map is IIRC a 2.1.0prealpha only parameter. use user map
