[Samba] Winbind problems

I'd appreciate any help getting winbind to work on Solaris 8 (Sparc). 
I've followed the HOWTOs and other documents on the web but can't seem 
to get even the basic functionality going.

Some platform info:
$ uname -a
SunOS epiuse-sun 5.8 Generic_108528-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,UltraAX-i2
$ smbd -V
Version 2.2.3a

On the NT side it is win2k with an ADS tree.

My samba config:

$ more /opt/samba/lib/smb.conf
    workgroup = domain
    netbios name = solaris
    load printers = no
    log file = /opt/samba/var/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    security = domain
    password server = nt
    encrypt passwords = yes
    domain logons = no
    interfaces =
    local master = no
    domain master = no
    name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host
    wins server =
    winbind separator = +
    winbind cache time = 10
    template shell = /bin/false
    template homedir = /home/%D/%U
    winbind uid = 10000-20000
    winbind gid = 10000-20000

now what i did:
$ /etc/init.d/samba stop
Stopping Samba
$  rm /opt/samba/private/*
$ smbpasswd -D 4 -j domain -r nt -U w2kadmin
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

$ /etc/init.d/samba start

$ wbinfo -t

$ wbinfo -u
Error looking up domain users

I've changed the domain name and the names of the 2 servers above to 
make it easier to follow (the problem does not seem to be with name 
resolution). I get these results even when I delete the Solaris machine 
from the ADS tree, or if I add it to the ADS tree manually with the 
backwards compatibility check.

I'm running my winbindd logs at debug level 1, and I have messages like 
[2002/02/11 07:17:59, 1] nsswitch/winbindd_util.c:get_domain_info(137)
   getting trusted domain list
[2002/02/11 07:17:59, 1] 
   failed tcon_X
[2002/02/11 07:18:08, 1] nsswitch/winbindd_util.c:get_domain_info(137)
   getting trusted domain list

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Jan van rensburg
