Well, seeing as 'compat' is 'files' with extras, you do not need both.
see 'man nsswitch.conf'
I would go with:
passwd compat winbind
group compat winbind
Adding 'winbind' to shadow has been known to cause problems and it
isn't needed anyway.
Why have 'dns' in 'group' ? what does a group have to do with dns ?
