I am receiving the following error message on Samba domain member
(SLES9/3.0.24).  Both PDC and BDC are Samba (smbldap) (SUSE 10.1 Samba

"User nobody with invalid SID
S-1-5-21-3838309271-3077283710-20730714-2998 in passdb"

This message is new having upgraded to current version from most recent
shipped with SLES9.

I am trying to figure out if this is related to the issue of why mostly
functional Samba client broke (can't map shares, etc.).  The reason for
the upgrade was an attempt to fix what seems to be a winbind issue were
SIDs took (inconsistently) long time to map to username/groups when
managing security from Windows box.

The only reference I can find to my specific log item is the following
which didn't seem to help:


Thanks in advance,
