[Samba] Winbind / Samba auth problem after username change

AVAHI is not running on our machines.

We're using Samba from the official sernet repository. I did a find-command on all sam.ldb files and
this is the only one which exists. Also when I delete them and restart the samba service, it's being created again, so
I guess it's the correct file the daemon is working with.

I've used the ldbsearch with the full logon name, however even when doing the command Mathias suggested no results are shown at all.
