I am experimenting with the new Samba 3.2.4 (currently we have 3.0.30 deployed) on our AIX boxes and I am experiencing some issues with the OS NGROUPS limit.
Furthermore, my Windows user has more than 128 group memberships (which is the NGROUPS limit for AIX).

However, in my Samba 3.0.30 environment this is no problem whereas in Samba 3.2.4 this poses a problem:
The log states

[2008/12/04 12:00:53,  0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(1663)
  PANIC (pid 553208): sys_setgroups failed

Any idea on how this different behaviour can be explained?

Thanks in advance.

Met vriendelijke groet
Best regards
Bien à vous
