Hi all,

Will keep this brief :-) Just trying to clear some things up regarding 

wbinfo -u returns "Error looking up domain users". I'm only using 
winbind for ntlm_auth which works fine. I'm not using AD or any Windows 
server-based domain. Samba only. There don't seem to be any obvious 
errors in the winbind log. Do I need to worry about that error? Should 
it list my full user list?

I've recently upgraded to 3.0.26a from 3.0.14 and noticed Samba has 
added a couple of extra groups on my LDAP server: sambaSID=S-1-5-32-544 
and sambaSID=S-1-5-32-545. One has displayName:Administrators and one 
has displayName:Users. These two groups are the only ones that appear 
when I do wbinfo -g. What are these and do I need to worry about them?

wbinfo -D seems to work, wbinfo -t seems to work.
