OK, If I run this on a Unix domain member:

getent passwd samdom\rowland

I get no output, but this:

getent passwd samdom\\rowland

gets me this:

rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/rowland:/bin/bash

I use the winbind 'ad' backend and 'Domain Admins' does not have a
gidNumber attribute, but 'Domain Users' does.

getent group "samdom\\domain users"

gets me this:

domain users:x:10000:<list of group members>

Try running 'net cache flush' and then try again.
