[Samba] samba 3.0 and group mapping

Now to add to my previous post, after the group type is set to domain group
and I have a samba 3.0alpha18 fileserver using winbind for authentication
doing the command 'getent group' does not return the list of Domain Groups
in addition to the local groups.  Doing an ls -l of a share directory does
not resolve the gid numbers to names and an NT ACCESS DENIED is generated in
the PDC log file for each lookup.  See my previous posts (from a few days
ago) for more information and logs.

I have exactly the same results.
Have you got an answer yet?
Or does anybody else know how to deal with this?

Thank you for a reply.



hi list,

i am playing with samba 3.0 alpha 17 from cvs 20020701 and global groups
running as pdc.

i installed to /usr/local/samba30 (having the lock dir under
/var/lock/samba30). i mapped some unix groups, but the dont appear as
global group. on the w2k sp1 machine. i have also no domain admins
right. the domain logon itself works fine.

any ideas?

btw: swat doesnt not work for me, it brings on the netscape client:
document contains now data. just for information.

thanx 4 any answers
