Try running the command as root or with sudo, and with debug to a high

Do you get any additional troubleshooting information there?  (3 is a 
good start and you can go to 10.)

You should see two groups by default:

 > net groupmap list
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> BUILTIN\administrators
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> BUILTIN\users

If that doesn't give you anything helpful, try running with strace for 
more info:

 > sudo strace -o /tmp/ngm.strace net groupmap list

You can then analyze the output in /tmp/ngm.strace for additional clues.
