[Samba] Samba-Active Directory only returns default group

I have a RHEL 4.6 server with the Red Hat supplied Samba
3.0.25b-1.el4_6.4 packages (samba, samba-client, samba-common)
installed. I was able to bind this server to our Active Directory forest
but when I run "groups username" all I get is "username : domain users"
despite the fact our users are members of multiple groups in our AD
domain. However I can chgrp files/directories to domain groups other
than the default Domain Users group.


I can successfully run wbinfo -g but I cannot run wbinfo -u, I get a
"Error looking up domain users" message.  I verified that nscd is not
running. Does anyone know how to help Samba find the other domain groups
that our users are members of? Below are my config files:




workgroup = WORKGROUP

netbios name = SERVERNAME

server string = SERVERNAME

security = ADS


password server = domain_controller_IP

client use spnego = NO

server signing = AUTO

ntlm auth = YES

lanman auth = YES

use kerberos keytab = YES

log level = 10

local master = NO

domain master = NO

idmap uid = 10000-300000

idmap gid = 10000-300000

template shell = /bin/false

winbind enum users = YES

winbind enum groups = YES

winbind use default domain = YES





 default_realm = DOMAIN.FOREST.COM

 default_keytab_name = FILE:/etc/krb5.keytab

 dns_fallback = no




                kdc = DOMAIN03.FOREST.COM.:88

                kdc = DOMAIN02.FOREST.COM.:88

                kdc = DOMAIN01.FOREST.COM.:88

                admin_server = DOMAIN03.FOREST.COM.

                admin_server = DOMAIN02.FOREST.COM.

                admin_server = DOMAIN01.FOREST.COM.



        .domain.forest.com = DOMAIN.FOREST.COM
