The only real thing running authconfig did to the smb.conf was to add:

   password server = MIND.UNM.EDU

You shouldn't need this, so I think your dns is up the spout ;-)

If you have populated the users uidNumber, loginShell and
unixHomeDirectory attributes the winbind 'ad' backend should use them,
provided that Domain Users has a gidNumber attribute and all numbers
used are inside the DOMAIN range set in smb.conf

Can you post your /etc/hosts, /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/krb5.conf files
