Description CK Ng 2007-06-24 23:17:31 UTC
'wbinfo -g' & 'gentent groups' only return partial result compare to 'net ads group'. But able to get missing group info. 

Unable to authenticate group.

# wbinfo -g | wc -l
# net ads group | wc -l
# getent group | wc -l
5047        [+ local groups]

Take a group dl.samplegroup, which is in the DC, but missing from wbinfo

# net ads group | grep dl.samplegroup
dl.samplegroup    [found]
# wbinfo -g | grep dl.samplegroup
[not found]
# getent group | grep dl.samplegroup
[not found]

BUT, these works

# getent group dl.samplegroup
dl.samplegroup:*:15053: user1,user2,....
# wbinfo -n dl.samplegroup
S-1-5-21-839012768-2468886555-2058922813-7287 Domain Group (2)
# wbinfo -Y S-1-5-21-839012768-2468886555-2058922813-7287

From the PDC, it turns out that the groups does not appear
in wbinfo are of Group Type: 'Distribution' in Win2k AD? The other is of
