NIS+ and Secure NFS

This problem with NIS+ and Secure was formely posted under comp.unix.solaris
I have a central NFS-server with all the user disks mounted. The other machines are mounting these disks through DES authenticated NFS. It works fine regarding to the users own files, but when i comes to group permissions something is wrong. Someone told me that it is the group information in passwd.org_dir and not the one in group.org_dir there's in use ?? (it sounds strange to me, only the primary group information should be in the password file).
Somehow i believe it's a problem with some other credentials.
I have a share on m1:
- /export/projects secure,rw=cs ""
I mount it:
m2:/export/projects - /projects nfs - yes intr,bg,secure,soft
(m2 are in netgroup "cs" and have valid credentials)
The volume is mounted ok on m2, and it works fine regarding to the permissions for the user and everyone. Only group permissions fail.
