Spaces in groupname and winbind

Do you have a LARGE user and/or group base in the NT domain you are querying
Does getent group ALWAYS return the same subset of groups, or does the
output differ each time you do it?
Is there anything outstandingly different between the groups that show up
with getent group and the ones that don't (but do with wbinfo -g)?

Thanks for the clarification. That seems to work. My only problem now
is that only a few groups are being returned w/ 'getent group'. I can
get a full list of groups by doing a wbinfo -g, but not through the name
service. Anything that does a group ID -> group Name mapping, like
"ls", etc, are severely slowed down, and remote authentication isn't
working in some cases. Presumably due to the inability to map 'valid
users = @GROUPNAME' b/c the groupname isn't coming through getgrp().
Anyone else see this on Solaris 8?
