Thought so, you are storing a file on a share on the DC, but your users 
are unknown to the underlying OS. You need to check if the 
libnss-winbind links have been set up correctly and if 
/etc/nsswitch.conf passwd & group lines have winbind has one of the 
options. see here: 

I know that it is for a domain member, but the info is also relevant if 
you use the DC as a fileserver (note, this is not recommended).
