Everyone - 

I have successfully solved my problem with help from Gareth!

I entered:

wbinfo -A Administrator%"my long admin pw" (with the quotes)

then I sent SIGHUP to winbindd and I can now list users and groups!

Thanks a million Gareth!

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
tux.#########.net 2.4.19 #1 Fri Oct 25 15:39:52 EDT 2002 i686 unknown)
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
