I did a "net sam createbuiltingroup Administrators" and a "net sam
createbuiltingroup Users" to solve the nested group problem. Then I populated
them with:

net sam addmem Users "DOMAIN\Domain Users"
net sam addmem Administrators "DOMAIN\Domain Admins"

Sorry about the dumb question:

Are the "BUILTIN\Administrators" and "BUILTIN\Users" local (nested) groups
supposed to be populated with DOMAINNAME\Domain Administrators and
DOMAINNAME\Domain Users (respectively) by default? If I download the Redhat
Samba package, they are populated. Not so with a compiled version.

I've had a helluva time populating BUILTIN\Administrators and BUILTIN\Users,
even using "net sam addmem". I'm guessing that it is something I'm doing

My compile options are:

--with-acl-support --with-configdir=/etc --with-winbind --with-ads --with-pam
