winbind: wbinfo -g only lists global groups from PDC and not local groups

Dear all,

I am setting up a fedora machine to be a memeber of a domain at work. I have been following the installation guide from the Samba HOWTO collection.

When I type wbinfo -u , I get the complete list of users from the PDC. However when I type wbinfo -g , I only get the Global groups from the PDC (The PDC is a WinNT machine). I dont get the Localgroups. Why is this ?

Is there anyway of converting the localgroups on the winnt to global groups ?

Thank you for all your help.
