Unfortunately, some things came up and I going to be here for a while. 
So, I changed the debug level on winbindd to 5.  Wow, there is a lot

When I use wbinfo -u or wbinfo -g, I can see a request to the DC and
information being retrieved.  However, when I use getent passwd or getent
group, nothing is logged by winbindd.  Does this mean the request is not
getting to winbindd?
