Sort of thought that was what was going on.

Sorry, i read it one way and you meant it another 😁

You meant that you get a shortened list of users, I read it as you get 
shortened usernames 😅

You are using the winbind 'rid' backend , so the ID's are calculated 
with this formula:


Which in your case, would be:

ID = RID + 30000

This means that any RID's larger than 969999 would be ignored, but this 
is such a large number that I don't think this is your problem.

As you are using Debian buster, I take it you are using Samba 4.9.5 but 
what is the DC ? not that this should matter.

If 'user1' is shown by getent, but 'user2' isn't, then I would suggest 
comparing the two user objects in AD.
