[Samba] Unable to add AD users to local groups

I have Samba 4.4.7 running on several Sparc boxes running Solaris 9 as 
member servers in an Active Directory environment.  (I do not control 
the AD configuration)

I am able to connect to the servers using windows clients and smbclient 
- the problem I have run into is when I try to add domain users to local 
groups on the Samba servers  I am told the users do not exist.

As these users I can  connect  to shared folders, I can log into the 
host using the active directory user's ID and password

What I see:

# net sam addmem urbanweb ADDOMAIN\\1001362
Adding domain group member failed with NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER

Not seeing any hints in the log files even at level 10.

Any thoughts on what to look at/for?

Thank you
Bob Martel
