I want to join samba 4.10.13 to an Win2k16 Server as member. The join
was succesfully:
net ads join -U administrator
Using short domain name -- CRANIX
Joined 'ADMIN' to dns domain 'cranix.win'

wbinfo -u lists all users. But wininfo -u <username> delivers following
wbinfo -i administrator
failed to call wbcGetpwnam: WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND
Could not get info for user administrator

        netbios name = admin
        realm = CRANIX.WIN
        workgroup = CRANIX
        security = ADS

        winbind refresh tickets = Yes
        vfs objects = acl_xattr
        map acl inherit = Yes
        store dos attributes = Yes
        dedicated keytab file = /etc/krb5.keytab
        kerberos method = secrets and keytab
        winbind use default domain = yes
        winbind enum users = Yes
        winbind enum groups = Yes

        idmap config CRANIX:backend = ad
        idmap config CRANIX:unix_nss_info = no

        bind interfaces only = yes
        interfaces =,
