[Samba] wbinfo on a PDC

Hi again,

The problem I have is that I have a PDC and a member server but the 
permissions don't seem to propogate from one to another. If I run getent 
passwd and group I get all the users and groups from the UNIX/LDAP 
backend and if I run net groupmap list I get identical group mappings on 
all my servers. wbinfo -u & -g return the correct NT user and group 
lists on the member server but return an error when run on the PDC.

I really need to know whether wbinfo should return anything on the PDC 
or whether being a PDC means it's all handled behind the scenes by Samba 
and the error message is redundant.
