In general yes, if this attribute is not set ipa_sam can search for a
group with 'cn=Default SMB Group' (which is created during
ipa-adtrust-install) and use this group. I'm just wondering what would
be the fallback if a smart admin has deleted this group as well.
Simo, Alexander, should we fallback to the well-known RID 513 for 'Domain
Users' in this rare edge case, jsut to make sure that there always is a
RID which can be used?
