[Samba] Mapping all members of an AD group to a single unix username?

Hello all

I've tried various permutations in the smbusers file ( referenced by
username map ), to get all members of a Windows AD group to be able to
authenticate to a Samba Share, mainly along the lines of DOMAIN\GroupName,
but I can't figure out a way to get this to work.

What I need is for any member of the DOMAIN\SambaGroup to authenticate to
the Samba server as the unix user winuser.

Any tips or pointers on this? I've exausted all perumtations I could think
of in google, and various pages seem to suggest that this can be done, but
don't say how.
