Thanks for your input.

(Backup is called amanda (debian package), seems to be hard coded to run as user 'backup' I'll set up a test case and see if backup user can be created from AD before I install amanda.)

Can I use user mapping instead? Map backup to an AD user which is member of the backup ad group?
