I am having the same issue. I am running Samba 3 Alpha 24 trying to connect
to a W2K3 Server with AD. If I getent or chown I can see all my domain
users, but sshd, login, etc (PAM apps) cant see the accounts. When I try to
login to the console as a AD user or SSH I get the following in

Jun  2 20:38:58 gonzo pam_winbind[1900]: request failed: No logon servers,
PAM error was 4, NT error was NT_STATUS_NO_LOGON_SERVERS

The issue is when I do wbinfo I can see everything....

My config is as follows:

ads server = animal.ad.techfortify.net
security = ADS
encrypt passwords = yes
winbind separator = +
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template homedir = /home/%U
template shell = /bin/bash

Anyone that can help? TIA

Is nscd running?  If so, turn it off.

Is winbind added to /etc/nsswitch.conf?  Does the command "id
YOURDOMAIN+user" work? It should.
