[Samba] Winbind+nss working on one centOS 5.2 box but not another

Hi all,

I have an odd situation on my hands:

* Two CentOS 5.2 boxes both joined to an AD domain.

* Same samba version (3.0.28-1.el5_2.1) smb.conf, only the netbios names

* Can enumerate users and groups using winbind -{u,g} on both.

* nss doesn't enumerate users & groups on one (same lib versions, same
conf file).

//bentis at testukmcsstor1//:~$ rpm -qa | grep nss-

Looks like this may be more of a libnss problem than a samba one, but
can anyone suggest how I can start to troubleshoot?

Thanks in advance,

Ben Tisdall
