Im really totally lost about this problem. I tried a lot of things in
smb.conf but it just doesn't work. I mean it is working fine on 3.3.2 so
I don't think this is a problem in AD. It must be something that has
changed in the config of 3.5.2

Subject: [Samba] Getent passwd and getent group fail / Samba 3.5.2

Hi all,

I just stepped over a problem where I can't add a local user to an AD
group. Running getent passwd and getent group doesn't display the AD
users. Wbinfo -g and -u work fine. Here is my smb.conf:

        netbios name = sles11test1
        realm = SOMEDOMAIN.NET
        workgroup = SOMEDOMAIN
        security = ADS
        encrypt passwords = yes
        password server =
        idmap backend = ad
        idmap config SOMEDOMAIN : backend = ad
        idmap config SOMEDOMAIN : schema_mode = sfu
        idmap config SOMEDOMAIN : range = 0-99999999
        winbind nss info = sfu
        winbind enum users = yes
        winbind enum groups = yes
        winbind offline logon = yes
        preferred master = no
        winbind nested groups = Yes
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        max log size = 50
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        log level = 3
        dns proxy = no
        wins server =
        allow trusted domains = No
        client use spnego = Yes
        kerberos method = secrets and keytab
        dedicated keytab file = /etc/krb5.keytab
        winbind refresh tickets = true
        idmap cache time = 1
        idmap negative cache time = 1
        winbind cache time = 1

In the log I get this error when running getent group:

tail -f /var/log/samba/log.winbindd-idmap
  Could not get unix ID
[2010/05/04 10:15:29.444783, 1]
  Could not get unix ID

Getent group and passwd works fine e.g. on an old ubuntu install with
samba 3.3.2.

So far I have this problem on SLES9 and SLES11.
