When you do the getent passwd user 
you need to actually specify the domain for example if you have 2 domains
called DOMA and DOMB and you had users in each you would do 
getent passwd doma\\username or domb\\username  (given \ is your winbind
separator )

This should help you with your question I believe

Subject: [Samba] winbind - getent problem


I'm trying to authenticate users from AD. I did join the machine to the
domain, and I'm able to see the users list with wbinfo -u.

I have the following problem:
"getent passwd" it givs me the list of all users.

"getent passwd user"  does not give any answer. 

what could be the problem?

I'm using SUSE Linux 10. with the packages that came with the distrib.
