I'm having some troubles with the winbindd.  When trying to access a
samba share, I receive the above error in the MACHINE_NAME.log file.
I've ran the command smbpasswd -j MY_DOMAIN -r PDC -U Administrator, and
it worked fine.  wbinfo -u returns "Error looking up domain users", but
I'm not sure if this is related to my 1st problem.  I'm going to dump in
my config files, so you all can be an extra set of eyes..
