Thanks Rowland, below is the edited /etc/nsswitch.conf:

# /etc/nsswitch.conf
# Example configuration of GNU Name Service Switch functionality.
# If you have the `glibc-doc-reference' and `info' packages installed, try:
# `info libc "Name Service Switch"' for information about this file.

passwd:         compat winbind
group:          compat winbind
shadow:         compat
gshadow:        files

hosts:          files dns
networks:       files

protocols:      db files
services:       db files
ethers:         db files
rpc:            db files

netgroup:       nis

And here is the output of "getent passwd fsilveira":

root at dc1:~# getent passwd fsilveira
root at dc1:~#

About the file serving here: 

Should I use the "Setting up a share using Windows ACLs" tutorial?
