Thanks for the reply - your idea is exactly want i want to do . I am setting
up default winbind to no shell "/sbin/false" - the question how do i
accomplish the secaond have of your answer which is to give certain users
access to the shell "/bin/bash" - winbind users don't appear in
"/etc/passwd" thats why I can't just user " usermod -s /bin/bash username"

does anybody know who to give certain winbind users access to the shell
while the global setting in smb.conf is set to "/sbin/false"
