I am not seeing any users or groups returned when I issue a 'getent
passwd' or 'getent group' command with samba 3.0.25rc3. This worked when
using v3.0.24 on both Gentoo and Debian 4.0. I am using the same config
as before with the exception of the 'vfs objects = readahead' option for
windows vista.


Here is my samba config:



        netbios name = SolidSnake

        workgroup = MARKETSCAN

        realm = MARKETSCAN.COM

        server string = %h Samba Server, %v

        interfaces = eth0, lo

        bind interfaces only = Yes

        security = ADS

        log level = 3

        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

        max log size = 50

        client signing = Yes

        load printers = No

        os level = 2

        preferred master = No

        local master = No

        domain master = No

        dns proxy = No

        ldap ssl = no

        idmap uid = 10000-20000

        idmap gid = 10000-20000

        template homedir = /home/MARKETSCAN/%U

        template shell = /bin/bash

        winbind enum users = Yes

        winbind enum groups = Yes

        winbind use default domain = Yes



        comment = Home Directory for %U

        path = /home/MARKETSCAN/%U

        valid users = /%D/%U

        create mask = 0700

        directory mask = 0700

        browseable = No

        vfs objects = readahead



        comment = Public Share on %h

        path = /home/samba/public

        valid users = +users, "@domain users"

        read only = No

        create mask = 0755

        vfs objects= readahead


This appears to be affecting my ability to use domain creds for just
about anything.

My nsswitch.conf has the necessary winbind lines in it, I just done know
why it isn't working.
