1) why and how could I have done that?

2) this leads to another issue with locales and umlauts:

I can't "chgrp domänen-admins", in german it's "domänen-admins", on bash
shell it looks like


# wbinfo -g

# wbinfo --group-info="dom�nen-admins"
failed to call wbcGetgrnam: WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND
Could not get info for group dom�nen-admins

Do I have to log in with US locale?

any hints how to fix that?

thanks! and greetings to your brother.
