When I had getent issues, it turned out to be the "idmap backend"

Is your pam login file set up for winbind?
Although it seems only vaguely related to your problem, there was an
issue about connecting _from_ a W2K3 system listed here:
I don't know is that is an issue for you or not.
If none of these help you, you will need to post your smb.conf and Samba
version to let the real experts diagnose. I comment on what burned me. ;-)
