If wbinfo -s and wbinfo -n both show the same uid-sid mappings then
winbind itself should be ok
# wbinfo -n jsmith
S-1-5-21-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-1234 User (1)
# wbinfo -s S-1-5-21-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-1234
Does "getent passwd" and "getent group" return "Windows" users?
Does "id MYDOMAIN\jsmith"
If not you may be missing the libnss_winbind or nss_winbind file in
/usr/lib (or /usr/local/lib) depending on OS and where samba was installed.
The group thing is weird. "wbinfo -g" shows more groups than "net rpc
group list" But "wbinfo -g" shows groups from trusted domains and the
BUILTIN domain. I would check the results of "net groupmap list." Make
sure that Domain Users and Domain Administrators are mapped.
