Actually, if I work in /tmp on my machine, I can change the group
ownership of a file so it has to do with a file from the NFS server.
If I try a Linux client that is not in the domain, then I can change the
If I put the group into /etc/group on the file server, then it works on
the AD client which seems weird.
So this probably has something to do with the file server... I've
restarted winbind there, but that didn't solve it....
The file server has the identical winbind config as the client.
I wonder if I need to reshare the mount because when the mount was
originally mounted, the group was in /etc/group, but then /etc/group was
reduced, and the group transferred to AD.
Hopefully to be figured out.
