[Samba] Joining Samba 3.24 to 2003 ADS

I'm hoping someone can give me a clue what I am doing wrong here,

Running Debian Etch AMD64, I followed the samba wiki at:

I get mostly good results, except when I try to run 'getent passwd' or
'getent group' only local users/groups are listed.


I was able to join the domain: net ads join -U admin_user

The system shows up in AD under computers on the PDC.

Afterwards if I do wbinfo -u, wbinfo -g, wbinfo -p, wbinfo -t, wbinfo -a

All of those appear to work correctly. 


This however seems somewhat fishy, it says "Active Directory: No":


'wbinfo -D domain.com'

Name              : DOMAIN

Alt_Name          : DOMAIN.COM


Active Directory  : No

Native            : No

Primary           : Yes

Sequence          : 2008


My nsswitch.conf looks correct:

passwd: files winbind

shadow: files winbind

group: files winbind

hosts: files dns wins
