Re: [Samba] Issues post AD migration




Hi Rowland,

The group was in /etc/group and LDAP. Post the AD migration, the group didn’t show up in AD. We then added the group in AD, will check if it has a gid number.
If AD doesn’t have gid, can I remove the group /etc/group and assign it the same gid in AD?

The group in question was one of many which had the same issue, hence the question about importing missed groups in AD

 
Regards,

Praveen Ghimire

Not sure I fully understand what you are saying here, Are you saying
that you have a group in /etc/group but not in AD and you have now
added this group to AD ?

If so, delete the group in /etc/group and ensure the group in AD has a
gidNumber.

You will probably have to run 'net cache flush' after making the
changes.
