Sorry, but I can't convince it to accept this.
(I tried 
   valid users = %D\%S		#I think this could not work, as \ means line continues?
   valid users = %D\\%S
   valid users = %D'\'%S

Is there a way to find out what smbd expects/accepts to see for a 'valid user'?

And where can I get infos about this 'winbind' thing?
(I don't have a clue)

Thanks and regards
