I edited the smbldap-populate script and added the Power Users entry to the
LDAP database using the script.
dn: cn=Power Users,ou=Groups,dc=origin,dc=bz
cn: Power Users
description: Netbios Domain Members can share directories and printers
displayName: Power Users
The group type is now local. However the Power User privileges still do not
apply and gpresult doesn't list membership. Furthermore, LDAP Admin shows
the group as being local but doesn't show any members although there is one
member. Members of other "local" groups are listed in said groups.
Any ideas from anyone?
