[Samba] valid users and groups with winbind

	I was having the same problem with getting groups to work,  so I
tried your solution,  but can't get it to work either.  

1. I set up a read only share,  made sure I didn't have write access.

2. I added 

	write list = WALNETNT_karen"
   and verified that I now had write access.

3. I then changed the write list to give write access to the whole domain
users group 
   (which karen is a member of),   but I no longer had
   write permission ...  I tried all of the following,  
   but none seemed to work: 

	write list = 'domain\domain users'  
	write list = 'domain\Domain Users'  (case sensitivity check)
	write list = 'WALNETNT\Domain Users' (maybe you meant for me to use
my domain name?)
	write list = 'WALNETNT_Domain Users' (My winbind separator is "_"
... Use this?)
	write list = 'domain_Domain Users'  
	write list = ''domain_domain users' 
I didn't try taking the quotes off,  I didn't think UNIX would deal with the
space in the domain group name very well.  I logged off and back on as
various domain users while testing this to make sure the permissions weren't
being cached on the client PC.  I'm obviously missing something here,
perhaps you can shed some light?

Winbind groups start with DOMAIN\, and as a quirk, don't need the @ prefix.

So valid users = 'domain\domain users' should do what you want.
