[Samba] groupmap not working correctly

I'm having a similar problem. Have you tried checking whether the group is
listed in the local group in computer management? Or can't you get that far
because of user privileges? My problem is that I have to restart the
computer before the second user logs on to get the correct privileges. It's
a bit annoying having to restart just to login as a different user.

Subject: [Samba] groupmap not working correctly

Currently, my company is trying to deploy a Samba 3.0 server with an 
LDAP back end, for domain authentication. Everything's going extremely 
well so far except for one facet: net groupmap doesn't seem to play well 
with LDAP. I can make the mappings just fine:

hank:/var# net groupmap list
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-616220168-3974143565-3883354751-513) -> users
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-616220168-3974143565-3883354751-512) -> wheel

However, when it comes to actually giving these users the permissions, 
it isn't done. Members of wheel aren't given Administrative privilege on 
Domain Member machines. And I can't seem to figure out if there's a way 
to view the membership of a group through Windows dialogs, so I can 
verify whether or not the correct users are indeed members.

Has anyone else had a problem similar to this, or can give me pointers 
as to where to proceed from here?
