    Hi all,

    Ubuntu 8.04 Server 64-bit edition
    Samba 3.0.28a configured as PDC
    I have NO WINDOWS NT MACHINE ON THE NETWORK. WinXP clients login to the samba domain and access their home directories as configured.

    I am following the instructions in to add domain users to the winxp clients Power Users group.



    /usr/bin/net rpc group addmem "Power Users" "DOMAIN_NAME\$1" \
    -UAdministrator%secret -S $2

    exit 0

    comment = Netlogon Share
    path = /export/samba/logon
    root preexec = /etc/samba/scripts/ %U %m
    read only = Yes
    guest ok = Yes

    I tried executing the net rpc group addmem command manually and here's what happens
    #net rpc group addmem "Administrators" "Domain Users" \ -S WINPCO32
    Usage: 'net rpc group addmem <group> <member>

    root@sunbox:~# net rpc group addmem "Power Users" "domain_name\username"
    Could not add domain_name\username to Power Users:NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_ALIAS
    (I replaced the domain_name with the name of the domain and username with the appropriate user account.)

    #net rpc group addmem "Power Users" "Domain Users" -S
    Could not add Domain Users to Power Users: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

    where is the clients machine IP address

    How can i make this work?

    Can anybody help
