I currently have samba version 3.0.23 installed using ldap as the
backend. I am experiencing the same problems as Holger Wesser mentioned
in his posting "USRMGR.exe not working properly". However, it appears
that the fix of creating the group mappings does not work. They appear
to be mapped correctly on my setup. My net groupmap list is:

Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-1882045844-2771900506-1057560041-512) -> Domain
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-1882045844-2771900506-1057560041-513) -> Domain
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-1882045844-2771900506-1057560041-514) -> Domain
Domain Computers (S-1-5-21-1882045844-2771900506-1057560041-515) ->
Domain Computers
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> Administrators
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> Account Operators
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> Print Operators
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> Backup Operators
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> Replicators

However, there are no groups listed in usrmgr.exe or any of the dialog
boxes for adding users/groups in XP. The users are listed correctly in
usrmgr.exe but with none of the group memberships.

In addition, net rpc group members "Administrators" reports:
    Couldn't list alias members

I was hoping for some direction on how to diagnose and correct the
