I'm reposting this, as I just resubscribed to the list using my new mail addy:

I've found that I need to do a few things to make Samba work with AD (and, it 
does for me.  I must have 15 server (Linux and *BSD) connected to our network 
via Win2008R2-based AD).

First, I believe you have to get kerberos set up properly on your Linux box.  
Next, configure nsswitch.conf to use winbind.  Then, you must join the box to 
the domain, just as Geza mentioned.  After that, start samba.  Finally, you can 
run the commands that Geza suggested (wbinfo -p, wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g.  I'd 
also suggest "getent passwd").  These steps are all very well documented, and, 
are easy to find, but if you have a problem with anything, let us know.
