JohnS,

  Why are you suggesting I filter the output of getent?  What does
this have to do with getent retrieving information from the active
directory?  Please help me understand you logic here...  also I would
like to know the following:

1) are you using samba
2) is your server a memeber of the active directory?
3) are you using winbind via nsswitch so local utilities can enumerate
users and groups from the active directory?
