Yes. Passwords are also managed this way.

wbinfo only gives me information  from my AD domain (I think). I'm not sure
how to query our local samba but I guess the users  and where they come
from was expressed in the deprecated line in my old config:

      auth methods = guest sam_ignoredomain winbind:ntdomain

Yes the samba broke when I updated Fedora 26 to 27 when samba went from 4.6
to 4.7

My fault for not testing enough. But samba is an add on feature of the
system and I overlooked it. Roll back is not possible.
Installing an older samba I guess could be possible but it means stepping
outside package management.
