Hey guys,

The main functionallity of winbind is to import the domain users and group
from a domain controller into the UNIX environment where Samba is running.

You can still choose the way you would like to authenticate. Use a domain
controller (the same one winbind is using), create a smbpasswd file
locally, ...
