If you got winbindd then you should be okay.
Try wbinfo -u ... that should give you a lit of the users on the NTDomain.
Assuming this comes back with meaningfull into then the only iss can be your
Make sure you have:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 15881 Sep 28 15:43 /lib/libnss_winbind.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Oct 12 10:28 /lib/libnss_winbind.so.2 -> /lib/libnss_winbind.so
and you have:
passwd: files winbind
group: files winbind
If the wbinfo -u doesn't help then try:
wbinfo -t (to test the secrets) If this doesn't work then you need to join
the domain again.
Also try looking at the log files they are frequently very usefull.
