Yes, but its not working, is it, not at first anyway. Samba expects to
use winbind and it is only half set up.

What LDAP record ? You said the DC was a Samba AD DC, so I take it you
are referring to the users AD object. The only place I would use
something like nslcd (I take it this is what you are using) is on a DC
and only then to obtain the users homedir and shell from AD.
You have to run winbind, so why not use it fully ?
