We do something similar using ntlogon, except that ntlogon runs on the 
pdc when the client connects to the netlogon share, and auto-generates a 
windows batch file. So you don't need to install software on the client, 
  or wait for group enumeration features to be added to samba (or use 
samba-3.0-alphas, or wait for samba-3.0.0).

> I can use User Manager to view user and group information...
> Am I trying to use functions not implemented yet?
