Hi Samba users
I have just compiled Samba 3.0.0 for Solaris 8 and am having a similar
problem that I saw when compiling samba 2.2.8a last week.
I set up winbindd as per instructions on samba.org including linking the
libnns_winbind.so file as documented.
I configure passwd and group entries in /etc/nsswitch.conf as per
Winbindd appears to run correctly and connects to the domain.
A wbinfo -g returns all groups
Wbinfo -g | wc -l returns 456 entries
Getent group returns only a subset of all Domain groups
Getent group shows lots of Domain groups but a 
Getent group | wc -l returns 230 entries
I am missing half the groups, any idea why?
Has anyone seen this?
Many thanks
