Dear samba users,

I have very strange problem. I have Samba PDC up and running, but only
thing is missing. I cannot see any Domain Groups at all.
Here is my config:

Debian Squeeze:
ii  samba                               2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze8
SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix
ii  samba-common                        2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze8       common
files used by both the Samba server and client
ii  samba-common-bin                    2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze8       common
files used by both the Samba server and client
ii  samba-doc                           2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze8       Samba

The strange thing is, if I try on Win XP to search groups, i see in logs:
smbldap_search_paged: base => [dc=example,dc=sk], filter =>
=> [2], pagesize => [1024]
  smbldap_search_paged: base => [dc=example,dc=sk], filter =>
=> [2], pagesize => [1024]
  smbldap_search_paged: base => [dc=example,dc=sk], filter =>
=> [2], pagesize => [1024]

If I try to search in ldap with that filter, I always get zero matches.

I also tried to use wbinfo, wbinfo -u list all my users, wbinfo -g list is
empty. If I try getent passwd and getent group I see all my users and
Can somebody help me with this?

Thank you!
