Why do people add stuff to the smb.conf on a DC without really knowing
what they are doing ???

wins support # Really, on a DC ?
enumports command # Again, why ?
dns forwarder # Only used with the internal dns server and you are
using Bind9

You might as well remove the following lines, they are either default
settings, do nothing on a DC or plain shouldn't be on a DC:

winbind nss info = rfc2307
winbind trusted domains only = yes
winbind use default domain = Yes
winbind nested groups = Yes
winbind max domain connections = 10
winbind sealed pipes = yes

I know you have set up /etc/nsswitch.conf, but is libnss_winbind.so

Is PAM set up correctly ?
what OS are you using ?
