Have you mapped local UNIX groups to Windows Domain Groups?

See:	net groupmap list

Map local UNIX group 'users' to the Windows Domain Group 'Domain Users' by:

	net groupmap ntgroup="Domain Users" unixgroup=users

Your UNIX users primary group membership should map to a Domain Group.

You can add a Domain Group for a UNIX group called 'engineers' by:

	net groupmap add ntgroup="Engineers" unixgroup=engineers type=d
