No, there is a simple problem and solution to get id.s


For the member, 
apt-get install libnss-winbind libpam-winbind

change /etc/nsswitch.conf 
passwd:         compat systemd winbind
group:          compat systemd winbind

Run pam-auth-update
And for testing set these to yes in smb.conf 
winbind enum users  = no
winbind enum groups = no

And here you go all you users ;-) 
Set it back to no and then use getent passwd username.
