Starting with Samba 3.2 we added a new shared library called libnetapi.
This library is designed very closely to the Windows NetApi equivalent,
and provides functions for all these tasks you are looking for.
For the upcoming Samba 3.3 release, this library provides around 50
calls and includes example code for at least all account management
You may want to have a look at:
and the the NetGroup* functions.
The header file is located under: $SRC/lib/netapi/netapi.h
Example code can found under: $SRC/lib/netapi/examples
Let us know where we can help further.
Hope this helps,
