how about 'getent passwd' ? does that enumerate the users from winbind?
'getent group' ? does that enumerate the groups from winbind?

if so, does a users uid from winbind match the uid from their 'home'

Thanks for your assistance. How do I check if the getent passwd/group
enumerates against winbind,
