[Samba] User cannot access member server share by name, only by IP

This is what I have for the passwd and group lines in nsswitch.conf:

passwd:         files winbind systemd
group:          files winbind systemd

Do I need to switch those around? I do not have users logging in on my
server consoles, only accessing their files from Windows workstations.
