How to map Active directory group members to linux equivalent

Hi all

wounder if you can help me am having a few issues trying to get group memberships to be driven from the standard active directory attribute called member but I can only seam to get it to work with memberUid which is not the same listing as group members as displayed in AD.

when I map attribute member the deamon fails to start.

# Mappings for Active Directory
pagesize 1000
#referrals off

filter passwd (&(objectClass=user)(!(objectClass=computer))(uidNumber=*)(unixHomeDirectory=*))

map    passwd uid              sAMAccountName
map    passwd homeDirectory    unixHomeDirectory
map    passwd gecos            displayName

filter shadow (&(objectClass=user)(!(objectClass=computer))(uidNumber=*)(unixHomeDirectory=*))
map    shadow uid              sAMAccountName
map    shadow shadowLastChange pwdLastSet

filter group  (objectClass=group)
#map    group  uniqueMember     member this field caused daemon to fail to start

uid nslcd
gid ldap

scope sub

ssl no
tls_cacertdir /etc/openldap/cacerts

thanks for any help in advance
