Hi Paul 

this is my suggestion:

1) get the winbind-idmap in text form with a getent passwd for example

2) remove the nss_winbind from the nssswitch.conf or what it is on
solaris; this is because the vampire will look in the unix database to
see if the account exist and if the account already exist it w'ont be

3) hack the script defined under "user add script" who will be adding
the users to use the information of 1). With the ldap backend this is
usually smbldap-useradd .

4) do the usual procedure 

Anyone has a better idea !
