That is what it is supposed to do isn't it !? wbinfo simply deals with
winbind but getent puts in calls to all those entries in nsswitch.conf which
are associated with say passwd or group. So I guess if you had
authentication to NIS you would see those as well.

That was me. I do have the symbolic link but I still have the same results.
I'm not sure it's causing me any problems though. Can anyone think of why it
might be a problem to have wbinfo -u list only NT users and getent passwd
return both NT and linux users?
