I received this error when add  a member to the Backup Operators group
The following setup is used:

# ./net groupmap list
Backup Operators (S-1-5-21-736258160-3382879245-470844908-551) -> backop

backop is a local unix group

# ./net rpc group list
Backup Operators

# ./net rpc group addmem "Backup Operators" adminbbs
Could not add adminbbs to Backup Operators: NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_ALIAS

adminbbs is not a local Unix group but can be look up with nis

# ypcat passwd | grep adminbbs

samba server is joined with an active directory domain
smbd, nmbd services are running, no winbindd daemon is activated. 

Any idea what could be wrong?

thanks for your input
