Yes!  That was it.  Thanks a lot.

But now I'm curious.  So if I wanted to map my unix "users" group to "Domain Users", what rid would I use, or does it matter?

- Delamatrix

I think you may need to check the rid you have used for the Domain 
Admins group. According to 
this is one of the well known rids which must be maintained for correct 
functioning of the NT groups systems. You have a rid of 7033 and I think 
it should be 512.
