Yes, you are right. For the initial question ('how to add a NIS
group?'), I used 'ldbedit', to add the two attributes and not 'samba-tool'.

But my further thoughts were, that the OP maybe would use 'ldapmodify'
for the group membership management. This can be done without any
problems using 'samba-tool', if the group membership is taken from the
AD attributes member/memberOf. 'samba-tool' should be the preferred way
here, instead of 'ldapmodify'. Reasons posted before.

Sorry, if this caused confusion to some people here.
