root@aphrodite:~# getent group "Domain Admins"
domain admins:x:10001:
root@aphrodite:~# getent group Domain\ Admins
domain admins:x:10001:

Well yes, but:

root@member1:~# getent group Domain Admins

Unless you do something to work around the space, Unix treats each part
as a different name, so 'getent group Domain Admins' becomes:

getent group Domain
getent Group Admins


Thanks Rowland, you are correct.
My share folder name with a space was escaped using "\" and I do have another test share with a space in the folder name that works ! So changing the folder name to something new makes it work and if changed back it stops working so somewhere there must be a memory of the old folder name with retained config problems. I bet it's stored in a Samba db or similar however this is beyond my skill set.
