pdbedit -L <user>
we get an error

uid <uid> is not in unix passwd database!
> Username not found!
This is because a user is not - as it says - in e.g. /etc/passwd.
Does this affect the functionality of group mappings in the way that this
doesn't work with the mapped unixgroup
and in which the user is in?:
For example: If you do a group mapping like
> net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Users" unixgroup="users"
so you cannot see the group "Domain Users" when browsing the domain because
of that corruption mentioned in the error message?
We use tdbsam as passdb.
