That guide at sounds like a perfect match for our needs,
unfortunately the map and reality didn't quite match...

Point 4.3 says:

So I did. However, all I get is:

> ipa: ERROR: Unknown option: sambagrouptype

but I've followed the instructions carefully. There's, however, an added
complication here and that's that the sambaserver runs on a different
machine than the IPA-server and since it's not obvious (to me at least)
which part goes where I ran all the commands on the sambaserver. I bet
at least some of the steps would have to be run on the IPA-server.

Does anyone have an idea what went wrong? All the commands went through
without a problem until ipa group-add...
