CentOS release 5 (Final)


Samba samba-3.0.25b-1.el5_1.4


The machine is successfully joined to the AD windows domain domainA.

Running getent passwd returns some weird results though.


ls -lah in the /home directory to list ownership will show


drwxr-xr-x  2 userA              INC\domain users 4.0K Jun 14  2007

drwxr-xr-x  2 userB              INC\domain users 4.0K Jun 14  2007


the user names are enumerated correctly but after a few minutes the
enumeration goes away 


drwxr-xr-x 18 16785852 16777729 4.0K Feb  5 22:07 userA

drwxr-xr-x  3 16780264 16777729 4.0K Feb  8 20:23 userB


is there a cache setting for samba that I'm missing somewhere?
