    Domain users are listed, machines are not.
    /winbind enum users = Yes/ is and has been set, as has /winbind enum 
groups = Yes/.

    I did not rejoin the domain.  I checked, and both hosts and hostname 
files are correct.  I now understand that this is the current default

    Sorry for the lack of clarity and detail.

    A share with /valid users =  DOMAIN+%S/ works as before.
    A new share with /valid users = @"DOMAIN+Domain Users", DOMAIN+dale/ 
fails where it previously worked.  A username/password dialog opens and 
refuses all credentials.  This particular "valid user" directive worked 
seamlessly in 3.0.22.
net groupmap list only retrieves the two BUILTIN groups (administrator 
and user), so it appears that it no longer finds all the Windows domain 
groups.  The release notes said default group mapping changes affected 
only tdbsam and smbpasswd backends.  Is this correct?  If so, perhaps I 
do need to rejoin the domain.

Thank you for the reply,
