Problem with Winbind.

Hi all, I'm not sure if this is the right group but feel free to point me in
another direction if it's not.

I'm trying to set up a file server on an Win2k PDC network to alleviate the
main machine.

I have Samba running (2.2.5) ok, I can browse shares and access my home
directory (if the user exists on the linux machine).

I have succesfully joined the domain with smbpassword -j Domain -r PDC -

I have added the machine as trusted on the Win2k server.

I have copied all the nsswitch files and entered the relevant details in the
nsswitch.conf file.

wbinfo -N NetBIOSname works ok and resolves, wbinfo -I IP works on and
resolves, wbinfo -t tells me my secret is ok but as soon as I go for -u
or -g it says "Error looking up domain users/group".

I get the following event on the PDC when I try -u or -g.

Object Open:
Object Server: Security Account Manager
Object Type: SAM_SERVER
Object Name: -
New Handle ID: -
Operation ID: {0,17310988}
Process ID: 280
Primary User Name: WILLOWBROOKLI01$
Primary Domain: WILLOWBROOK
Primary Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7)
Client Domain: NT AUTHORITY
Client Logon ID: (0x0,0x7D4E)
Privileges -

Is there something simple I'm doing wrong?

If you need more info let me know.

Any help is appreciated...

Kind Regards
