I just replied the first answer I got, and wrote a bit about the background, it’s Solaris 10 with the provided samba. I will look trough your suggestion and try to create a new config, I wold however like just to get it working as it was before right now and then take care of improvements when it’s not a disturbance for customers ( and not after a long night working in the weekend ;) ). I’ll try to see if I can recreate the “unconfigured” behaviour with id-mapping for now.

Thank you, it looks like I have stumbled on a old configuration that has not been maintained, I’ll do my best to get up to speed on samba and see if I can get a working configuration and/or new versin and get it to work.
