'net groupmap add' works for Samba 3 (at least from 3.0.7 on, my
experience up to 3.0.11). It works once and for all for all workstations,
even new ones that you add to the domain - you don't have to keep on doing
This is where the ldapsam backend and using GQ as an LDAP GUI is such a
help; you can see at a glance exactly what you've done and even use GQ and
the Samba tools to start all over again if you've made a mistake.
Your problem is, that you can't see the results of what you're doing and
why it isn't working.
