Thank you for getting back to me so quickly Alan.

Hmm, I mistakenly thought this info came from winbind. I executed
'groups aduserx' and received the groups the user is a member of,
including "fw-wifi-access" without a domain prefix.

'getent group is not returning the domain groups though.. I'm
currently trying to correct this. thanks for the tip!

True, here is the output for the two blackslashes:
getpwnam ADLAB\aduserx
getgrnam ADLAB\fw-wifi-access

I'd like to clarify that I'm having these issues on the 3.0.11 build
running under Ubuntu 16.04. FR 3.0.4 is running fine on Ubuntu 14.04.
