Two corrections - possibly ...

Greetings ...

 Okay, I am not sure these are really bugs, that is why I said corrections

 Running Samba 3.0.0 on the new Fedora Core 1, I have come across two
things that might need to be corrected.

 First is that man Samba list smbgroupedit, which I believe has been
merged into "net groupmap".

 Using a ldapsam_compat SAM, I found that the Group SID is 1201, and that
it should be 512 for Samba 3, is it fine to just change it in the LDAP DB
"primaryGroupID" from 1201 to 512, or do I have to make a group mapping
to a real unix GID?

 The other thing is the default for "logon path" and "logon home" to use
"%N", which does not reslove, I changed it to use "%L" and then works

 I know that "%S" for [home] has been fixed in cvs, so I am just listing
it here as not working in Samba 3.0.0 on FC1.

 Also, I do remember seeing a warning when enabling "domain logons" while
using winbind on RH9 using RPM's from Samba, I don't know if FC1's rpm
have this striped out.

 Okay, the last thing, moving files for a profile from a (RH8 - Samba
2.2.8a) server to a new ( FC1 - Samba 3.0.0 ) server, I had problems with
some funny files ( quater character has Samba panic, in 3.25 ) ... I am
sure I saw some talk on this before, but was wondering, short of
deleting, is there a possible workaround or fix for this?
