Yes, winbind is running.
Thanks for getting me to reconsider that 'rid' or 'ad' backends, but I
don't think they work in my situation
I have been using the nss backend because:
- On the server that I am setting up Samba, I have existing Unix users
with existing uids and associated data on the file server
- There is no usable uid information on the AD.
- I have no permissions to modify the AD to set up user information.
I understood that the nss backend was intended for this situation.
It worked on another server set up the same way but running Samba 4.4.4.
