Hello

I am using openSUSE 11.1 and OpenLDAP.
I added a new user with the following command:

smbldap-useradd -a -u 50002 -s /bin/bash -d /home/vbatch user

I want to change the primary user group, so I tried this command:

smbldap-usermod -g 690 user

But, I get the following error:

Error: sambaPrimaryGroupSid could not be set (sambaSID for group 690 does not exist)

What is sambaSID and why cannot I change primary group for the user?

Hi there,

Have you confirmed that group 690 exists?  You can also try using the same command but substitute in the group name instead of the GID.
