Subject: [Samba] group 'Domain Users' doesn't show up anymore


I'm running samba 2.2.3a as PDC and the two global groups 'Domain Admins'
and 'Domain Users' did work some time ago. 

I don't know since when, but now  only 'Domain Admins' shows up in the
usermanager of XP and win2k. In XP 'Domain Users' is replaced by
Unix.group.nnnnnnnn, in win2k it is completely missing. 

On the console 'Domain Users' becomes some cryptic chars:

X:\>net group /DOMAIN
The request will be processed at a domain controller for domain DEMAG
Group Accounts for \\PDC
*Domain Admins
The command completed successfully.

An equal search from a linux box brings the expected result:

$>rpcclient //pdc -U martink -c "enumdomgroups"
Domain=[DOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.3a]
cmd = enumdomgroups
group:[Domain Admins] rid:[0x200]
group:[Domain Users] rid:[0x201]

Any ideas how to get that group back ?
