1. you must create group mapping manually.
2. unix group you've assigning to "Domain Admins" MUST be in ldap (not
in /etc/group).


root# net groupmap modify rid=512 -d1 ntgroup="Domain Admins"

the domadmin group must be stored in ldap, not /etc/group.

i found lot of typo or incorrect info in smb howto collection, i've
ordering the printable version on amazon, hopefully it has different
content than the online version.
