Hi List,
We have a pretty complex samba configuration running version 3.0.21 , this worked for about 2 years , but due to security reasons we need to upgrade to latest version 3.0.28.
I have no local unix users created on our host all access is regulated via the valid user = @AD+group statement . and the net groupmap add command. This worked great , but seems broken in latest versions since 3.0.23
I checked the latest howtos , but no success , seems that i overlooked some essentials...
Now my smb.conf  (only the relevant lines)
         workgroup = WWxxx
        server string = 47556. at emailaddress
        security = DOMAIN
        netbios name = ATWS26QC
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        client schannel = no
        client use spnego = no
        server signing = auto
        config file = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
        password server = vieg10wa
        passdb expand explicit = no
        password level = 1
        winbind uid = 100000-130000
        winbind gid = 100000-120000
        winbind enum users = yes
        winbind enum groups = yes
        winbind separator = +
        winbind use default domain = yes
        winbind nested groups = yes
#the shares
        path = /home2
        valid users    @sbs_ors_ux @sbs_ors
        read only = no
        browseable = yes

output from net groupmap list
# bin/net groupmap list
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> 100000
sbs_ors (S-1-5-21-3932861455-2822179577-2594212704-125693) -> sbs_ors_ux  ----> thats the relevant group 
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> 100001
 But I cant get it to work , I´m allways asked for a password , but should work seemless , as it does with "old" samba version
Hope theres someone who can give me some hints , like a working smb.conf and or a howto to manage the "net groupmap add" command in the proper way
Best regards    Martin
