Hi, allow me to introduce you to the concept of a user being also a 
group and vica-versa. If you examine idmap.ldb:

ldbedit -e nano -H /usr/local/samba/private/idmap.ldb

You will find lines like this:


This means that your user can be both a user and a group

It has to be like this so that the 'Administrators' group can own 
directories and files in sysvol.
