On my second linux member (backup) getent passwd returns new name:

[root at backup ~]# getent passwd

There are two differences:

  - no description in passwd line
  - this member does not have "winbind use default domain = yes" in 
config file.

The rest is the same: OS, samba version.

I changed uid, sAMAccountName, msFU30Name from 'foo' to 'bar' using ADUC 
attribute editor. Now I have 'bar' instead of 'foo' in LDAP attributes. 
I double checked that attribues changed witch ldbsearch on Samba AD.

But getent passwd still shows 'foo' on first machine.
