| windows client! the shutdown fucntion is not there anymore!
| i don't want to list restricted my users as domain admin group.
| is there any way to get around is problem?
| thank Q!
Supposing that your group mapping is correct, something like this:

System Operators (S-1-5-32-549) -> daemon
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> disk
Guests (S-1-5-32-546) -> nogroup
Power Users (S-1-5-32-547) -> wheel
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-4109351342-2997801466-301355879-513) -> users
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> lp
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> root
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-4109351342-2997801466-301355879-512) -> adm
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-4109351342-2997801466-301355879-514) -> nogroup
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> adm
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> daemon
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> users

where S-1-5-21-4109351342-2997801466-301355879 is my test domains domain
Your problem is Windows Policy related. Depending on your Windows OS
version it could be the domain policy file in your Netlogon share for
Win 9x/ME and NT4 (you should know about this if you were setting up
your Samba server ;-) ) More probably you suffer from a Windows 2000/XP
"feature", called (I think) Local Policy. Probably you should go to each
Windows box and fire up the mmc plugin for managing that policies.

Good Luck!
