With a 2000 or 2003 Windows AD controller, I've run SFU 3.0 & 3.5 on both
client and server without side effects.
I use:
winbind nss info = template sfu
security = ADS
winbind trusted domains only = yes
idmap backend = ad

on the samba member servers.

Perhaps you mean you're running samba PDC and using SFU on a client
workstation?  In that case, I would assume, for it to work, you
would need to run an ldap backend and extend the schema for SFU.
Then fill out the unix values.

Anyone ever done that?
