That's a good idea but we don't know what setup the OP has, we only know
that getent group doesn't work. In any case, if he wants to see getent
password work with the setup you suggest, he's going to have to
configure winbind in at least two distinct ways, once for the DC and
once for the file server. He will also have to edit smb.conf. Or maybe,
he could get away with not using getent at all on the DC?
