I am a new user in Suse Linux/Samba. I deseperatly try to grant Administrator's and Power user's rights on my domain 
user's W2000 workstations. I use Sles9 sp3 Samba 3.020b ans LDAP. I have readed that I shoud use:
net rpc group addmem "Administrators" "Domain Users"...
I get: 
Could not loockup group member Domain users
Could not add Domain users to Administrators: NT_STATUS_NONE_MAPPED
With the "getent group" command I get all the Linux group, but not the default NT group
For mapping the NT to Linux groups I then tryed: net groupmap add ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=ntadmin
I get:
No rid or sid specified, choosing algorithmic mapping
adding entry for group Domain Admins failed!
Same second error message if I add rid=512 at the end of the command line.
With the command "net groupmap list, only my the LDAP's groups appear.
Finaly I am a bit confused with all the versions of Samba, Ldap and Suse. Many documents refered to obsolete commands
What's wrong ?
thanks in advance
