I had same problem (some time ago).
Such error occurs, because stable Samba (2.0.7) doesn't support user and 
group name mapping.
To make use of these params, you have to use Samba HEAD or Samba TNG (both 
As far as I know, support for mapping names is not yet implemented in 
stable Samba.

Domain NT FAQ on touches Samba HEAD, mostly.

        Do:     Samba <samba-ntdom at>
        Temat:  Domain Maps

I am runing samba 207 PDC and want to map the unix users and groups to
windows users and groups.
I added the following lines to the smb.conf file:
    domain group map = /usr/local/samba/lib/
    local group map  = /usr/local/samba/lib/
    domain user map = /usr/local/samba/lib/
then created the files in /lib
restarted the smbd
The log.smb file reports:
    Unknown parameter encoutered: "domain group map"
    ( the same for the other two parameters )
These were the instructions of the Domain NT FAQ in the web
What is wrong with it?
