Mandi! Mark Amundsen via samba
  In chel di` si favelave...

> I have a fileserver running samba 4.9.4 that is a member in an AD. The backup tool I am using is running as a linux user that is a member of linux group 'disk'. I'd like to add the group disk to a windows AD group 'backup' which have read access to the share. I am thinking that it is easier to manage the share from one point and that being the windows tool. I have only found a way to do the opposite.

You have to manage onlywith UNIX tools? If so, you can use 'pam_group'
to add (local) groups to domain users.

I use it to add 'adm' group to my domain administrator's group, so i
can see logs withouth beeng root.
