Hey guys,  so here's what's going on with this fresh install.  I think
I may have found a clue to a problem.

[root at ascldap samba]# /opt/IDEALX/sbin/smbldap-groupadd –a –g 525 students
[root at ascldap samba]# /opt/IDEALX/sbin/smbldap-groupadd –a –g 526 teachers
/opt/IDEALX/sbin/smbldap-groupadd: group –a exists
[root at ascldap samba]# net groupmap list
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-1653893-93114141-1052929415-512) -> Domain Admins
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-1653893-93114141-1052929415-513) -> Domain Users
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-1653893-93114141-1052929415-514) -> Domain Guests
Domain Computers (S-1-5-21-1653893-93114141-1052929415-515) -> Domain Computers
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> Administrators
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> Account Operators
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> Print Operators
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> Backup Operators
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> Replicators

Is it trying to say that in the first command that I created a groupe
name "-a" ?  I've tried smbldap-userdel -a and "-a" but it says
unknown option.  For the record I don't have guid 526 already.

Once again getent group shows this mysterious group named
\E2\80\93a:x:10000: for the user that I just created with


Domain Admins:x:512:root
Domain Users:x:513:test9
Domain Guests:x:514:
Domain Computers:x:515:
Account Operators:x:548:
Print Operators:x:550:
Backup Operators:x:551:

Intuition is telling me that my smbldap-tools are messed up but I'm
not sure to check that.

I posted the results of the tests at test.ascensionschoolnyc.org/ldap.

What the heck going on?  I swear I did a COMPLETE format.
