If I understand you right. You can't login to the Linux box as local
users. Then I should first check your /etc/nsswitch.conf. For users,
groups and passwd you should define where to look for the info: eg.

passwd :  files winbind 

Then it will first look in /etc/passwd and the try with winbind...

Hope it helps
