[Samba] wbinfo works, getent doesn't

Only time I have ever seen this was when /etc/nsswitch.conf was misconfigured,
and either didn't have winbind in the passwd and group lines, or the method before it
was configured to [notfound return] instead of [notfound continue]
Is it possible that someone has messed with this file lately, or that the libnss_winbindd  library (or the link to it) has broken?

Subject: [Samba] wbinfo works, getent doesn't

Hi All,

  I have an NT 4 domain with multiple samba servers.  One of my samba
fileservers stopped allowing domain login requests.  While it can enumerate
the domain users with wbinfo -u, and the domain groups with wbinfo -g,
getent passwd does not list the domain users.  All the other servers in the
domain are fine.

  Any suggestions for how to track down this error?
