about 3 weeks ago there was a power outage where our main file server was not connected to any dc for some time. (don't know if that's related)
since then winbind will randomly not resolve rfc_2307 users or groups whenever it feels like it.

have tried
shutting down nmbd,smbd.winbind and running net cache flush (and starting them up again)have tried turning off winbind group and user enumhave tried leaving and joining the domainhave tried 

service winbind stop
service stop samba
rm –rf /var/lib/samba
mkdir -p /var/lib/samba/private​
rm –rf /var/cache/samba 
net join ads –S "yourADserver" –U username
service winbind start
service samba start from a stack exchange page.

Don't know where to go next.

Debian Stretch install

Version 4.5.12-Debian
