Ned and Matze,

These are the groupmappings as I currently have set them.

Do the undefined ones make a difference? I had imagined not.

System Operators (S-1-5-32-549) -> -1
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-3651717320-665621003-1503018246-513) -> users
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> -1
Guests (S-1-5-32-546) -> -1
Domain Computers (S-1-5-21-3651717320-665621003-1503018246-2015) -> machines
Power Users (S-1-5-32-547) -> -1
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> users
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> adm
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> -1
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> -1
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> users
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-3651717320-665621003-1503018246-512) -> adm
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-3651717320-665621003-1503018246-514) -> -1

I guess I'll dig through the Samba manual and look at group memberships.
It's been at least a year since I was on top of things.

In Samba, you have three groups:

Domain Admins    NT Administrators
Domain Users     NT User - Not Master-Users
Domain Guest     NT Guests

Please read more about in the Manual.
