Thank you for the info, I know of someone running the 5.2.1 and is
having the same issues I am, so looks like if I truly want this to work
I must use Linux.

Thank you

Winbindd itself runs fine on FreeBSD 4.x, and is a great auth source for
things like Squid, or PAM, but full auto-magic NSS user/group auth isn't
going to happen.

NSS support doesn't really exist in FreeBSD 4.x.  There was an
implementation floating around, but you would know if you had installed
it - it would have required some googling, etc to find.. Last I checked
it would not support dynamic modules like Winbind.

Later 5.x versions have NSS and should work in theory, but I haven't
done much in 5.x, so can't say.

First off I would like to say the book "The Official Samba-3 HowTO and
Reference Guide" is awesome I purchased it off Amazon a couple of weeks
ago. Ok now on to my problem.

I have samba installed and configured and joined the domain no problem.

When I run wbinfo -u I can see my domain users, when I run wbinfo -g I
can see all my domain groups, BUT if I run
/usr/compat/linux/usr/bin/getent passwd I only see a mirror of my
/etc/passwd and do no see the domain users.

Winbind Setup in smb.conf

idmap uid = 10000-20000
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
        winbind separator = +
        winbind use default domain = Yes
