It isn't supported by Samba.

the 'passwd' line in /etc/nsswitch.conf is probably something like this:

passwd:  compat winbind

Though 'compat' might be 'files'

What this means is search in /etc/passwd for your user, return if found, 
if not found, search via winbind (in AD)

So if you run 'getent passwd qqeda11' with 'qqeda11' in /etc/passwd, 
then this the user that will be returned and the user in AD will be ignored.

The LOCAL Unix user != the Domain user
