[Samba] Problem with Winbind and groups

I guess this is where my problem exists.  These do not work properly.  I don't even know if they are installed properly.  Where can I get instructions and downloads for samba 2.2.7 for hpux?

Thank you
Jenn Fountain

Looks OK.

Also looks OK.

Could you verify with "getent passwd" and "getent group" if the winbind
nss link is really working. And with the getent commands you can also see
the exact names that winbind has given to the users and groups.

If you domain contains a large number of users and/or groups you could try
setting the winbind enumerate options to no. But I don't think that it
would help it this case.
