I didn't include these examples, but we tried both the NETBIOS name and 
the IP address of the Samba server; neither worked.

I am still unclear on this and would love to get clarification:  Forget 
about sssd.  If I run winbind, can I mount SMB shares from a domain 
member to a non-domain machine using a domain user account?  If so, I 
can try setting up a "pure Samba" machine which NFS mounts the 
appropriate directories and then SMB shares them to the non-domain hosts.
