In the above order:
uid=<LONGNUMBER>(<MYDOMAIN>+<MYUSERID>) gid=<OTHERLONGNUMBER>(<MYDOMAIN>+Domain Users) groups=<LONG LIST OF GROUPS>
Shows a long list of domain users, but doesn't include me. (This is what my original mail was all about.)
$ net user
Shows a short list of local (?) users, not including my account.
