Hey out there.

I have to join my UNIX server with an existing Win2k3 AD network.

My system info:
Debian Lenny
Samba   - 3.4.8
Winbind - 3.4.8

Windows Server 2003 with 2000-style-AD

My problem is that, I have en UNIX server that have to run auth up 
against our existing windows 2003 AD.

I have successfully joined my UNIX server to the AD, without problems.
# net ads join -U Administrator
Enter Administrator's password:
Using short domain name -- TEST
Joined 'MAIL' to realm 'TEST.LOCAL'

My Samba config: http://pastebin.com/ZqaA0Ypn

After the join I'm able to lookup peoples with
# wbinfo -u

# wbinfo -g
bg XX
bg hds
bg XXX

Now the problem, getent only returns the local users and not the users 
from the AD
The funny thing is that if a user is local on the UNIX and in the AD, I 
can login with the password from both local and AD, so I know that it 
can lookup people and passwords

# getent passwd hs ; echo $?

When I debug on getent it returns 2, witch means that it can't find the 

I know there can be a problem with this if the resolv-names is not working
