[Samba] Winbindd not listing users/groups

We have had better luck adding the machine account on the NT domain
controller,  then joining the domain with the smbpasswd command rather than
trying to do the whole thing from the smbpasswd command.  You could try
deleting the machine account, deleting your secrets.tdb file, and starting
that process over.

I entered wbinfo -A Administrator%password

And now wbinfo -t says:
Secret is bad

Any thoughts?

Greetings from NY!

I am running SaMBa version 2.2.6 compiled from source on a RedHat 7.3 (Linux
tux.#########.net 2.4.19 #1 Fri Oct 25 15:39:52 EDT 2002 i686 unknown) box.
I start smbd and nmbd as I usually do. Then I start winbindd

I verified that they are running.

I run :
smbpasswd -j DOMAIN -r Windows2kDomainController -U Administrator
Joined domain DOMAIN.

Ok, so I'm in the domain

Then I run:
[root at tux src]# wbinfo -t
Secret is good

Even better, my secret is good!

Then I try and list users/groups:
[root at tux src]# wbinfo -u
Error looking up domain users
[root at tux src]# wbinfo -g
Error looking up domain groups


wbinfo -A Administrator%password
