Hi Miguel,

What I was proposing was something to try and find out if there is a 
problem that can be cured by using the builtin 'winbind'. The OP is 
using bind9 instead of the internal dns server, so his smb.conf has a 
'server services' line and changing 'winbindd' in that line to 'winbind' 
is the same as what you have posted.
