There are documented bugs to that effect, although they usually list 16 
groups and NIS as your posix backend.  There seem to have been 
improvements in the recent versions, so you may want to consider 
upgrading to 3.0.4.

>It seems that Samba 3 has changed the user group behavior. We have users who belong to 15 different groups in Solaris and Samba 2.2.6 worked fine for those users. But after migrating to Samba 3.0.2, those users can no longer connect to Samba server unless we reduce the number of groups to about 11. Is this a known issue or expected behavior? If so, what's the solution without reducing the number of groups that users belong to?
