I could never get group mapping to work.  After reading Samba 3 by example,
I realized that I needed to migrate the relevant groups from /etc/group  to

I have set up a few servers since then and have not had any problems.

I use the migration tools from padl.com to migrate the /etc/group entries to
LDAP.  I only migrate the ones I need to map to Windows groups. See

This is clearly stated in Samba 3 by example but I did not see it in the
Official Samba 3 How To.
