Hmm...I've never tried it with a local user and a domain group.  I've
certainly done stuff like:

chown DOMAIN+David:"DOMAIN+Domain Users" *

and had it work before...

Subject: Hmm. Silly(ish) question re: winbind

I know that winbindd allows Samba to authenticate to the domain(s) on one's 
network... but I do have a question...

If I want to change the owner of a file to (say) me and DOMAIN+Domain 
Admins, is there a way to do that? I tried:

chown ges:DOMAIN+Domain\ Admins * and was told that:
chown: DOMAIN+Domain Admins: illegal group name

Just curious... :)
