[Samba] NSLCD works, do I need RFC2307 extensions enabled in AD as well?

I've just installed Samba 3.6.6 from the Debian Stable repo. I want to use
this linux box as a smb file server for windows clients.
I installed NSLCD to allow users in AD to authenticate against my linux
getent passwd and getent group returns domain users with UID mappings like:
tempuser at vanguard.mydomain.org:*:16043:16043:temp
Those same users can log into the linux box with their domain credentials
via ssh and create files owned by them
However I can't figure out how to configure Samba to allow these same users
to access a samba file share via a windows 7 client. I thought that Samba
would check /etc/nsswitch.conf like other services and use ldap just like
the relevant part of my nsswitch.conf file looks like:
passwd: compat ldap
group: compat ldap
shadow: compat ldap
Do I need to install RFC2307 extensions per
and then add something like the following to my smb.conf file?
idmap config DOMAIN:backend = ad
winbind nss info = sfu
Any advice is appreciated!
