[Samba] [samba] getent group [groupname] do not show users

Hum, that's strange:
smbfs20:~# getent group Domain\ Users
So no users displayed. smbfsXY are my test file servers, so members only.
Regarding usage of samba-tool on members for now it not possible as package
containing that tool is not installed on members. For now this stands as a
choice: samba-tool is very powerful and I'm not too fond to deploy on
machines which are not DC, where almost anyone can connect.
I expect a development choice for performance reasons to be the reason
"getent group [grpname]" does not show group's content. An option to
activate or deactivate that behavior would have great!
