Wbinfo -u & wbinfo -g do indeed work for me however getent passwd or getent group returns no AD users or groups. I have winbind entries in nsswitch for both the passwd & group entries. Josepeh, I will try a newer RPM from a different repository and see if that resolves my issues. Did my smb.conf look ok?
