Hello List,

In my logfile I found:

Sep 11 18:40:58 gateway smbd[92133]: [2006/09/11 18:40:58, 0] auth/auth_util.c:create_builtin_administrators(785)
Sep 11 18:40:58 gateway smbd[92133]:   create_builtin_administrators: Failed to create Administrators
Sep 11 18:40:58 gateway smbd[92133]: [2006/09/11 18:40:58, 0] auth/auth_util.c:create_builtin_users(751)
Sep 11 18:40:58 gateway smbd[92133]:   create_builtin_users: Failed to create Users

Someone gave me the advice to read 'WhatsNEW'!

Group Mapping Changes

The default mapping entries for groups such as "Domain Admins" are
no longer created when using an smbpasswd file or a tdbsam passdb
backend.  This means that it is necessary to use 'net groupmap
add' rather than 'net groupmap modify' to set these entries.  
This change has no effect on winbindd's IDmap functionality for
domain groups.

What does that means?
The default mapping entries were now made only whenn using LDAP?
It is not a problem to create the entries by hand or script but it would 
be usefull
having a table with the sid key's or am i wrong?

Another Problem ist getting the usersidlist.

# net usersidlist
[2006/09/14 12:30:00, 0] utils/net_rpc.c:net_usersidlist(4716)
Could not get the user/sid list

Why? I foudn no answer in the web.
