[Samba] Not able to add domain users to local groups

I was able to successfully configure my samba server 3.0.24 running on
Debian Linux server as "Domain Member Server" to W2k3 server.

Command "net rpc testjoin" indicates that the join is a success.

As mentioned in the document

Under the section

"Nested Group Support"

I was trying to add domain users to a local group, using the command

#net rpc group addmem <local-group-on-DMS> "<domain-name>\<Domain Users>"

But I get the message that

could not connect to local server

Looking at the Network traces reveals that samba server just sending the
"LSA Open Policy" packet to the W2K3 server and is NOT sending/requesting
"LSA lookup" to query for the domain users.

Does anyone know about this problem. Can anyone suggest me what extra
setting/configuration do I need to do to get this thing working?

Thanks in advance
