Most of this information is static and rarely changes.
IIRC, the default in current releases is 15 minutes.
Unless you rename users/groups frequently, the default
should be fine although it can be useful at much higher

You mean the login is slow? I'd tail a level 10 winbindd log
during login to find the delay.
