If only I knew....

at least "domain users" always fails, at the same I cannot sudo with my 
password (stored in AD). At that point I have to login using local root. 
But that was before I put a plaster on it ;-)

I just run winbind, with this distro provided service unit (which, BTW, 
references a $WINBINDOPTIONS that isn't defined anywhere, but since I 
don't need any special option that's fine)

Description=Samba Winbind Daemon
After=syslog.target network.target nmb.service

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/winbindd "$WINBINDOPTIONS"
ExecReload=/usr/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID
