Winbind does start, but when going to 'properties -> Security', 'add' and 
'apply', the added user isn't added. When using a fake idmap uid/gid in the 
smb.conf file, the added user is actually added.

When I use the fake idmap uid/gid 'wbinfo -n', 'wbinfo -s' and 'wbinfo -U' 
work OK. When not using the fake idmap, 'wbinfo -U' fails with 'Could not 
convert uid <uidnumber> to sid'.

To me neither. I got an other DMS up and running, and there is no problem 
regarding nscd, wether it's running or not.


BTW: I downgraded to 3.0.20b due to the alignment bug in 3.0.21a/Solaris.
