I saw your e-mail on the web and I am having exactly the same problem
running Red Hat AS 3.0.  can you please let me know what security parameter
you have changed in smb.conf to get wbinfo to work properly with -u -t  -g
and as well getent option.

A bit of success! I've change the security parameter in smb.conf to domain
and the windbind pipe is created OK and running wbinfo -u -g -t -p and
getent is all good. Obviously this doesn't give me full AD support but it's
better than nothing.
I can only think that because we have multiple DC's for different domains on
our WAN winbindd wasn't starting correctly as it was in the process of still
scanning them - looking at log.winbindd at one point it didn't come back for
close to 4 hours after the process was started.
Does anyone know if there is any way to configure samba/winbind to only
connect to the local AD domain rather than hunting down all the DC's in
every domain.
