[Samba] Active Directory Groups within /etc/group

I apologize if I'm going down the wrong avenue here...


I have Samba/Winbind working to authenticate AD accounts to my Linux
server.  I can perform getent passwd ADUser and view the user
credentials as well as using getent group ADGroup to view AD groups.
When I modify /etc/group I can add ADUser to the file and the ADUser
will have the security desired.  However when I add an ADGroup to
/etc/group it does not appear to work.


My end goal is that instead of listing out several users on /etc/group
on the wheel line, I would like to put an AD group on the line which I
can keep up to date in the windows world for individuals that need wheel
access.  If there is another way that I am missing, please let me know.
