[Samba] winbind joining NT4-style domain - two strange issues

I find "getent passwd" sometimes does not list all my network users 
(e.g. from ldap or winbind) BUT "getent passwd someusername"  does 
work.       This seems to be more on solaris than linux.

Sssd caching could be factor in getent passwd searches tho it should not 
directly affect winbindd.

The "wbinfo -i YOURDOMAIN\someusername"  should show if an uidNumber has 
been allocated for that user.

You may also need to delete the winbind or idmap cache files (tdb) in 
the locks directory after making a change.
