Have you added pam_winbind.so to your /etc/pam.d/samba file ?

Subject: [Samba] Winbind problems when mapping shares

I have just installed Samba 2.2.5. I am using Winbind and have changed the
following in /etc/nsswitch.conf. 

passwd: files winbind 
group: files winbind 

I successfully joined a PDC domain. When I list files, I see that groups are
being resolved from winbind. I have  userid xtuser defined to Linux. I see
the following: 

ibm9672:/home # getent passwd | grep xtuser 
xtuser:x:11240:11763:test user:/home/xtuser:/bin/bash 
PEP+XTUSER:x:11240:10255:E56157 | 062-0000:/home/xtuser/xtuser:/bin/false 

However I get the following error trying to map to Samba shares: 

[2002/07/15 17:51:04, 1] smbd/password.c:pass_check_smb(545) 
  Couldn't find user 'pep+xtuser' in passdb. 

I have xtuser defined to Linux. I noticed that output from getent shows
xtuser from Linux and PEP+XTUSER from the NT domain. The error message shows
lower case pep+xtuser. Is this my problem? How do I correct it. I appreciate
any assistance that anyone can provide. Thanks in advance.
