We use nss so all the unix computers at our site share the same database 
of users, uids and gids.

The problem that I'm having seems to be that smbd is trying to find a 
gid from the SID for the Domain Users group and is failing. This stops 
users from authenticating.

Using wbinfo I can resolve the "Domain Users" name from the S....-513 
SID but wbinfo fails to resolve a gid for that SID.

The domain controller is a windows machine that's part of the corporate 
IT network and I have no control over it.

Is there a work around for this?

Can I create an entry in a tdb file
