> Hi all,
> I just stepped over a problem where I can't add a local user to an AD group. Running getent passwd and getent group doesn't display the AD users. Wbinfo -g and -u work fine. Here is my smb.conf:


> In the log I get this error when running getent group:
> tail -f /var/log/samba/log.winbindd-idmap

> [2010/05/04 10:15:29.444783,  1] winbindd/idmap_ad.c:651(idmap_ad_sids_to_unixids)
>    Could not get unix ID

Doesn't that indicate that Samba thinks the SFU extensions aren't 
installed? What is the version of AD? Is it 2003 R2, or 2003 with SFU
