I am trying to authenticate samba 3.3 running on Centos 5 to Windows 2003 R2 Active Directory. 

95% of my setup is working. 

The only thing that doesn't work are expanded groups. 
Whenever a group is a member of another group the permissions in samba/nss/winbind are not communicated 
correctly to the windows client but seem to work on the linux end of things. 

Here's my scenario. (All hostnames are internal) 

AD Groups and Members 
testgroup9 members: cjohnson,erodriguez,testuser11,testuser9 
testgroup10 members: testgroup9 

Getent group responds correctly populating the testgroup9 members into testgroup10
