A little rewind here.  My smb.conf hasn't changed (much) in
ages, and it works/worked fine for whatever "I do with it".
Maybe it needs tuning, maybe not.  Maybe I don't need to run
winbin at all, that's not the point.

It's when my company bought some other company and the
internal IT did something to integrate their domain into
ours, that winbind started spitting those lines.  Maybe the
AD is misconfigured, but if it is I can't do anything about
it (rather than point it out to them, maybe).

I stop as many new things that fedora throws at us as long
as possible.  Sssd will now be off until something breaks.

rpenny> Is firewalld running ?

No, I use iptables/ip6tables.
