Yes and this IS correct and the default..
I recommend NOT to change it.. and you really must..
Change primaryGroupID in the AD, but really, use ACLS..
So whats set as ACL on /home/alice
Then next part..
its what Rowland is saying, you should see all the users in the domain user group.
Whats set in /etc/nsswitch.conf ? since your using ubuntu and I don’t think apparmor is bugging you.
if that’s the case you should see it in the syslog I think.
The smb.conf is correct. Ow. ps, one thing..
you don’t have " winbind refresh tickets = yes" in add it.
At least, the only thing I didn’t see.
I have this in nsswitch.conf on my debian buster/bullseye servers.
passwd: compat winbind systemd
group: compat winbind systemd
hosts: files dns mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return]
Also keep this in mind..
You can add a windows users with UID/GID in a linux group.
You can not add a unix users to a Windows group.
So, what I think, the primary GroupID isnt changed from "domain users" to g_alice in the AD.
Or you hitting cache problem; try also : net cache flush
but I pretty sure its one of the above points.
