When you configure Samba without LDAP, then I think group mappings would end up referring to file:
While configured as LDAP as the back end, it is necessary to map domain groups to local workstation groups, which can be done via:
net groupmap add ...
commands as illustrated on page 8 of the presentation I referred to. Otherwise you will only have the default information pre-populated when you prep the LDAP server for use with Samba.
Thus I can understand why you get different results when you change database back-ends.
Have you yet checked "ifmember.exe /list" and have it show what groups your test ID is actually a member of?
