samba-users: [Samba] getent doesn't list my users when using idm

[Samba] getent doesn't list my users when using idmap_adex

I'm trying to integrate an existing linux environment with a Windows AD
environment. All my users are already in AD with valid rfc2307
attributes defined so I need a way to authenticate my users using
username, uid, gid, shell and homedirectory from AD. I've been using
Kerberos+LDAPs before but that requires a dummy AD user hardcoded with
username and password in /etc/ldap.conf which is making me icky.

According to the man pages it looks like idmap_adex should do the trick
for me, however I can't get things to work. (see config files below)

Running 'wbinfo -u' does give me a the list of valid users, however
'getent passwd' waits a second after displaying the local users and then
just gives me back the command-line prompt.

In /var/log/samba/log.winbindd-idmap I see:

[2010/07/28 18:10:01, 0] winbindd/idmap.c:201(smb_register_idmap_alloc)
  idmap_alloc module tdb already registered!

  LWI: Failled to connect to cell "dc=MY,dc=DOMAIN,dc=COM" (NT_STATUS_NO_LOGON_SERVERS)

Note that the adex module is available on the filesystem:

root@ubuntu:/var/log/samba# locate *adex*

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
