That gets me looking in the right direction.  Thanks.

I added the domadmins group as outlined and set SMBRID, but "net sam  
list groups" still shows no groups.  I wonder what the opern directory  
criteria for a group to be listed there is.

Can anyone do a:

dscl -u [LDAP Node Admin] -P [LDAP Node Admin Password]  / 
LDAPv3/ -read /Groups/groupname

for a leopard server group that DOES show up on the Windows client and  
compare it with this:

# dscl -u odadmin -P xxxxx  /LDAPv3/ -read /Groups/domadmins
dsAttrTypeNative:apple-generateduid: XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX- 
dsAttrTypeNative:cn: domadmins
dsAttrTypeNative:gidNumber: 99
dsAttrTypeNative:objectClass: posixGroup apple-group extensibleObject  
dsAttrTypeNative:rid: 512
AppleMetaNodeLocation: /LDAPv3/
PasswordPlus: ********
PrimaryGroupID: 99
RecordName: domadmins
RecordType: dsRecTypeStandard:Groups

Does "net sam list groups" show said group?
