did you modified /etc/nsswitch.conf
it must look likes this :
passwd:		db files winbind
group:		db files winbind

shadow: db files

don't forget to copy /samba-src-path/source/nssswitch/libnss_winbind.so
in /usr/lib (for example) and link it to libnss_winbind.so.2 (ln -s
/usr/lib/libnss_winbind.so /usr/lib/libnss_winbind.so.2 ) and update
library path by typing ldconfig
