Thanks for your time testing and investigating all this!
But this appears not to be the problem I had. I tried you approach and
resetted my samba on my testmachine from bloody scratch. Joining to my
PDC was not the problem - as before. Problem was accessing a share on my
testmachine from windows. This still only works if I fire up winbindd
after I have joined the domain. I did *NO* winbindd config things.
Neither in smb.conf nor nsswitch.conf/pam. I appears that winbindd just
needs to be there to create the magic. Doing the 'smbpasswd -a root' did
not change anything - here for me and my desert.
Thanks again for your help ...
