In unix, yes this is the case, however in Windows a group can. For
instance, this works:
chown 'DOMAIN\Domain Admins' CoreLib/
ls -lad CoreLib:
d---------+ 2 MMIA\domain admins BUILTIN\administrators 5 Dec 8 11:59
Using kerberos and ldap, there doesn't seem to be anything stopping
this. However, if I understand what you're saying, the BUILTIN\* users
and groups are part of the unix system that Samba runs on, and thus some
type of mapping must occur with "real" unix accounts. I'm still not
clear where this mapping occurs though -- which account/group is it
actually mapping to?
What I don't get is why any of the BUILTIN\* users and groups would ever
be assigned to a group in unix. The group file attribute in unix is
never used by Windows, however the owner is. If every BUILTIN\* group
mapped to a user in unix, this all would work perfectly, no?
