Thanks for the feedback. However, when I run 'smbcontrol winbindd
offline' it returns nothing, yet when I run 'smbcontrol winbindd
onlinestatus' it returns:

PID 4349: globla:Online BUILTIN:Online WLL-7179:Online AD_DOMAIN:Online

If I run 'wbinfo -u|-g' I get back user/group listings as I'd expect
even when I pull the network cable. Yet, when I attempt to login or su
to an AD user account with the network cable pulled, it fails. In
log.winbindd it shows:

cli_rpc_pipe_close: cli_close failed on pipe \NETLOGON, fnum 0x3 to
machine AD_PDC. Error was Call timed out: server did not respond after
10000 milliseconds

I'm still missing something. Is there better documentation talking about
how to implement offline logins with Samba somewhere?
