OK, I am back ;-)

I understand it now, sigh
This is what I think is happening;
When you kinit as the user, it uses whatever is returned by nsswitch,
but, as a single '\' is treated as an escape character and is
removed, you get DOMAINusername. If you use something else as the
winbind separator e.g. ':' you will get DOMAIN:username, but this
still will not not get you anywhere. You will get this:

kinit: Client 'SAMDOM:rowland@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' not found in
Kerberos database while getting initial credentials

It was this that pointed me in the right direction.
If you check the users object in AD, you will find the
userPrincipalName attribute, this will contain something like:


This is what kinit is looking for and if you run 'kinit rowland', this
will work and if you run 'klist' you will find that the 'Default
principal' is rowland@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Net result, you will have to use 'winbind use default domain = yes'
