[Samba] Winbind problem?

Hi Derek,

I reported this as bug number 1383, but it turned out
to be correct behaviour. The error message sounds as if
something is wrong, but it just says that there are no
domain users and domain group, since all users and groups
are LOCAL to the PDC. If you have a trusted doamin to
this PDC you will be able to see these...

Please look in the description of bug report 1383 for
more detail.

Regards, Hans.

Subject: [Samba] Winbind problem?

I've got a Samba PDC and a Samba domain member server.  I successfully 
joined the domain, started winbind and run the wbinfo -p; wbinfo -t 
tests, both succeeded.  But if I do a winbind -g I only get 
BUILDIN/group and if I do a wbinfo -u I get "Error looking up domain 
users".  But ntlm_auth succeeds.

So I'm a little confused.  At this point this is a minor issue since 
authentication is working, I was just wondering why I can't list domain 
users and groups.

Setup details
PDC is running Samba 2.2.8a on Solaris
Member server is running Samba 3.0.4 on Debian linux.
