I am running Samba 3.0.28 on a Solaris 10 SPARC machine. Samba is

I manually copied the libnss_winbind.so files to the /lib directory.
I can run wbinfo -p, wbinfo -t, and wbinfo -a
"MyDomain\SomeUser%UserPasword" successfully. I can also connect using
the smbclient //Server/Share -U UserName command successfully. If I am
running nscd, I can run wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g successfully. If I stop
nscd, then wbinfo -u returns "Error looking up domain users" and wbinfo
-g returns only BUILTIN\administrators and BUILTIN\users.
Using the getent passwd "MyDomain\UserName" or the getent group commands
returns a blank line regardless if nscd is running or not.
Any help is appreciated.
