Are you use the nss_winbind or winbind_nss files compiled?   They may  be in
a separate directory or explicitly require "make nsswitch" command.

Subject: [Samba] getent behavior since 3.5.x

Since upgrading to samba 3.5.x (x=2,3,4) from samba 3.4.8 and samba-3.3.12
on FreeBSD versions 6.4, 7.3 and 8.0, getent has failed to return samba
group or user entries displaying only the local unix group and password

wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g seem to work just fine.

No smb.conf changes were made during the upgrades.

Falling back to samba 3.4.8 resolves this issue.

Logins using the samba credentials always work without regard to version.

Several bug reports exist which describe these problems although not
specifically for FreeBSD.

Is this expected behavior?  I realize that getent isn't a samba utility.

Should another bug report be submitted?  What info? debug level?

Thanks for any reply.
