I cannot make it better than the how-to. I have an interdomain trust working to
a W2K3-server, and I just followed the how-to.

Though I got a problem like yours when I upgraded to the 3.0.23-series. I tried
a lot of things, and eventually I made it work again, but I'm not quite sure
how. One step was a restart of the Windows-server. (I know it sounds strange for
a *NIX-admin, but this is Windows...)

I think you should upgrade to the latest version 3.0.23c. The first versions in
the 3.0.23-series are buggy, and it might involve the interdomain trust.

It looks like the problem I had.

This one as well.

I don't use these. I think you should avoid "winbind trusted domains only" when
you don't use LDAP.

Good luck!
