I am using samba 3.0.20 and winbind 3.0.20 on Debian Linux kernel
version 2.4.27

ii  samba          3.0.20b-bycast a LanManager-like file and printer
server fo
ii  samba-common   3.0.20b-bycast Samba common files used by both the
server a
ii  winbind        3.0.20b-bycast service to resolve user and group

I was able to authentic with AD Domain and allow groups and individual
users to access the CIFS share from Windows.

However, there is a AD User Group name "ABC USERS" I need to grant
access to.  How do I specify the User Group name with space in between
in the samba share file.  

In my AD-TEST domain, if I rename the "ABC USERS" to "ABCUSER", the
users within this group can access the share. 

Sample share-testshare.inc
read only = yes
write list = @AD-TEST\ABCUSERS AD-TEST\ps
valid users = @AD-TEST\ AD-TEST\ps @AD-TEST\ABCUSERS @AD-TEST\readonly
path = /fsg/testshare
force user = fsg-client
force group = nogroup
browseable = no
printable = no
public = no
security mask = 0777

Thank you.
