Can you confirm that your system recognizes the 'cad' group (which I assume
is in LDAP and not in local /etc/groups)? Run 'getent group cad'. What is
the output of this command? If you get an error, then you need to fix that
first (check your nsswitch.conf, /etc/ldap.conf and /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
files and make sure you can run manual queries against your ldap server).
