User list

A space-separated list of usernames. In Samba 1.9, @group-name will include everyone in Unix group group-name. In Samba 2.0, @group-name includes whomever is in the NIS netgroup group_name if one exists, otherwise whomever is in the Unix group group_name. In addition, +group_name is a Unix group, &group_name is an NIS netgroup, and &+ and +& cause an ordered search of both Unix and NIS groups.
