Greetings ...

    Sorry for cross posting, but  I have seen this problem on both lists ...

    Okay, I am not sure if this is a problem only on RedHat using the 
rpm, because I tried only with rpm installations ...

    Install Samba3 from rom on RedHat 9.  Configure and join domain, 
kewl.  Test winbind with wbinfo -u and -g, also kewl, but no answer from 
getent passwd ... put in winbind in nsswitch.conf in the right places.

    Finally found that the rpm was not installing/creating the sym-link 
in /lib from to ... after this, I 
was able to getent passwd ...

    Hope this helps.
