The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 6431
local groups from 3.0 setups no longer found
Last modified: 2009-11-10 08:03:50 UTC
in 3.0 local groups (aliases) where stored in the idmaps ou. In Samba 3.2 they are stored in the groups ou and also the search for groups is only done in the groups ou. To not break exsiting 3.0 setups the search shouldn't be done in a sub-ou. The attached fix from Volker fixes fixes this in 3.2 and 3.3. You can use sed "s:source/:source3/:;s:->mem_ctx::" to make it apply to master and 3.4.
IMHO, the fix should go in 3.2, 3.3, 3.4.
