Perhaps I misunderstand you, but getent is a query tool, not something
that you use to add entries to /etc/passwd or /etc/group.
If you wanted to use it to add entries, you'd need to do something like:
getent passwd | grep "YOURDOMAIN+" >> /etc/passwd
But, then that would defeat the purpose of using winbind anyway.
Hope this helps,
