solaris and /etc/nsswitch.conf and winbind

Could you show us what is in nsswitch.conf? This looks like a syntax error.
Here's what the relevant section of mine looks like:

passwd:     files nisplus nis winbind
group:      files nisplus nis winbind

Solaris does not seem to like the option winbind in /etc/nsswitch.conf.  If
I put it there and then try to run passwd, passwd complains and displays the
options that it thinks are suitable to exist in the /etc/nsswitch.conf.
What's the best way to work with this?
