Thanks. The problem was the symbolic link. It works now

It works on Redhat 7.1 against my NT4 server, you should have something
that looks like this for the nsswitch module:

$ ls -l /lib/libnss_winbind*
/lib/ ->

If the symlink isn't there, you can create it with
$ cd /lib
$ ln -s

then just make sure that /etc/nsswitch.conf is configured correctly, for
me it looks like:
passwd:     files winbind
group:      files winbind
