OK, so do your users have a 'uidNumber' attribute ?
also does 'Domain Users' have a 'gidNumber' attribute ?
are these numbers inside the range you have set in smb.conf '10000-99999' ?

Does /etc/resolv.conf point to the DC as the nameserver ?

do the 'passwd' & 'group' lines in /etc/nsswitch.conf have 'winbind' added ?

You also posted this: 'however wbinfo -u only shown local accounts'

Which local accounts does it show ?
It isn't supposed to show local users, only domain users.

Is 'nscd' running, if so, try turning it off.

You are also using the 'local' TLD, if avahi is running, turn it off, it 
isn't compatible with using 'local' as your TLD.
