In case anyone is interested, I finally figured out what was wrong. It 
wasn't samba, but some active directory permissions. I guess when you 
install SFU on small business server, the SFU attributes of users in the 
SBSUsers OU are not readable to authenticated users. The other attributes 
were, which is why i was able to get some user info, but not do the SID to 
user id conversion. Also the main top level users container (cn=Users) did 
have the SFU attributes as readable--these were the users that were showing 
up for me when running "getent passwd".
