No, I asked if you were trying it that way and if you were, to try it
the second way. 

The only way I get the error you are getting, it to try and add a user
to a group using the domain and user name e.g.

root at dc1:~# samba-tool group addmembers unixgroup "SAMDOM\suser1"
ERROR(exception): Failed to add members "SAMDOM\suser1" to group "unixgroup" - Unable to find "SAMDOM\suser1". Operation cancelled.
  File "/usr/local/samba/lib/python2.7/site-packages/samba/netcmd/group.py", line 239, in run
    add_members_operation=True)
  File "/usr/local/samba/lib/python2.7/site-packages/samba/samdb.py", line 278, in add_remove_group_members
    raise Exception('Unable to find "%s". Operation cancelled.' % member)

But if I do it without the domain:

root at dc1:~# samba-tool group addmembers unixgroup suser1
Added members to group unixgroup
