Greetings --

What causes this? I can see that it is a valid group...

[root at store08b ts_folders]# wbinfo -g|grep site002 MYCHARTS\site002_group


But when I try to assign ownership, it says it is invalid...

[root at store08b ts_folders]# chown -R root:"MYCHARTS\site002_group" 002

chown: invalid group: 'root:MYCHARTS\\site002_group'

I have samba 4.125.11-15 on Rocky Linux release 8.6.
