[Samba] Auth. failing - Update - NSSwitch

Thank you Andrew, you pointed me in the right direction. Part of what I m
doing to try to get Netatalk to authenticate through Winbind was the
4) to install Winbind files:
cp nsswitch/libnss_winbind.so /lib
# this is the major one - solaris nss is different to linux.
ln -s libnss_winbind.so nss_winbind.so.1
cp nsswitch/pam_winbind.so /lib/security
Once I deleted /lib/libnss_winbind.so & nss_winbind.so.1 I can access the
samba share again from a PC. I still have no luck with Netatalk, or anything
else Unix related using Winbint (telnet, ftp, etc...)

	The wbinfo success shows that winbind is mostly operative. The only
other test I do on winbind is "getent passwd", to make sure the libnss
interface is feeding NSS with the right passwd entries. If the output from
that command contains Windows users, then winbind is operating properly for
	The next thing I'd look at after that is the PAM stack. Maybe the
checking isn't getting as far as netatalk, or winbind? Since I don't use
PAM, I can't help with that. I had PAM working with an earlier version of
Samba, so I know it can be done, but I haven't used it in months.

	This may be an unconfirmed bug in Samba 2.2.3a. My suggestion is 
	to try with 2.2.2 until we can resolve (or discount) any 
	2.2.3a bugs.
