I think you should use 

winbind separator = +

and not

winbind seperator = (my domain) + (username)

Assunto: [Samba] winbindd fails, cannot join domain - HELP

  winbindd will not fire


smb.conf - 
winbind seperator = (my domain) + (username)
winbind uid = 1000-20000
winbind gid = 1000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes

/etc/nssswitch.conf -
passwd:    files winbind
group:        files winbind is in /lib
"                            ".2 is a link to above in /lib

As I said /usr/local/samba/bin/winbindd will not fire, also I cannot join
domain, when I invoke smbpasswd -j (my domain) -r PDC Administrator, I get 
this: unknown parameter : winbind seperator, ignoring winbind seperator.
 then it ask for password, I type in the CORRECT password and I get: 
Error connecting to PDC
Unable to join domain
