You may have already known this, but when I set this up I found that
it was absolutely mandatory that the name of the libnss_winbind module
In my case, I have a symbolic link in /lib with this name pointing to
where I have Samba installed (which is under /opt). After running
ldconfig with this link in place, everything began working properly.
Without the ".2" suffix on the link name (or on the library name),
libnss_winbind never got called no matter what I did.
