	I grab the RawHide src and updated to 3rc1 and wbinfo -t now works, seems like a problem with mkrpm in 3rc1.  I will look further once I have my system working.

	This also fixed 

wbinfo -a test2%test2
plaintext password authentication succeeded
challenge/response password authentication succeeded

	I have found that I have to do a 

[root at dctest-01 samba]# wbinfo -n test1
S-1-5-21-2875628134-430090060-3946654109-1114 1
[root at dctest-01 samba]# wbinfo -S test1
Could not convert sid test1 to uid
[root at dctest-01 samba]# wbinfo -S S-1-5-21-2875628134-430090060-3946654109-1114

	Before I am able to have nss use the uid numbers for the fs, but I am not able to do a chown test1 ./testdir, I still get 
chown: `test1': invalid user

	Do I need to configure pma before I am able to do this?


P.S. Please can any give me a hand with this. Thanks.
