I altered the /etc/samba/smb.conf file to use '_' as the winbind separator
character and asigned BROCKLEY_ADMINISTRATOR to the admin users:

   winbind separator = _

After a restart of the smb service (#service smb restart) I get this:


# smbclient -L BRDC-01
Password: <cr>

mount: bad UUID


So, a bad UUID tells me that I am not getting a UUID from the PDC and that
the one being provided by the smbclient is meaningless.  So, how do I
obtain an appropriate UUID/GUID assigned to look at these shares?
