Hi, me again.

Following problem: editing user/group-acls under NT4 is possible without any problems. But under W2000 I´m just able to add/edit GROUP-permissions 
and to edit USER-permissions. When I want to ADD a USER I always get:

"Error while searching for displayable usernames." (translated from German)

On both the NT4 and the W2000 every user is displayed twice.

What the hack does that mean?

When I set log level = 2 the only error-message appearing is:

[2001/03/15 17:32:50, 3] rpc_server/srv_lsa_hnd.c:close_lsa_policy_hnd(272)
  Error closing policy
