Thanks to everyone for their intial replies.

I have edited nsswitch.conf and I have the links that Patrik mentioned.

I'm not really too fussed about getent working ( only in so far as getent
not working maybe indicates a more general problem )  or allowing users to
log on - I just want users without unix accounts to be able to access samba
shares without having to use username.map or leaving shares wide open.

So all I'm looking at is using winbind for samba authentication only - has
anybody got this working on Solaris 9 with 3.0.0 and security=ADS?
