[Samba] Implementing NIS based ACLs

I am trying to implement ACL's using netgroups.
Something like :-

valid users = @u-gm-dev

However the trouble is every time a new user has to be added to the netgroup to grant permission, samba has to be restarted.
kill -HUP <pid of smbd> does not work.

Any suggestions on how I can add users on-the-fly ? or maybe a better solution ?
