can you elaborate a bit on this?

fileserver is joined to the domain, but seems not getting something  
(or the cfg I made is wrong - it does not allow me to open my home  
\\fs\user while being logged on to the domain (ok, I am logged into  
the domain over VPN and it seems to be enough for domain  
administration using windows tools)

wbinfo -u (executed on FS) lists all domain users, as well as wbinfo  
-g - groups.

But if I try to get info on myself using wdinfo -i user at DOMAIN, i get
"Failed to call wbcGetpwnam: WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND"

Another thing I do not understand is: how can I set permissions for  
shares on FS in the form of DOMAIN\user or DOMAIN\group?
