OK, I have lost track of this, but it looks like you are running Samba
as an AD DC. Have you checked that sssd isn't installed ?

If it is, remove it along with all the 'sss' in /etc/nsswitch.conf
Have you created the libnss-winbind links ? either manually (see here: 
) if you compiled Samba yourself, or by installing the required packages if you installed Samba packages (libnss-winbind libpam-winbind libpam-krb5 on Debian/Ubuntu and winbind-clients on redhat)
