Sorry, but you cannot set up smb.conf on a DC in the same way you set
up a Unix domain member. You might as well remove most of the lines
after 'idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes'
winbind nss info = rfc2307 : It doesn't work
winbind use default domain = Yes : It doesn't work
winbind enum users = Yes : It slows things down
winbind enum users = Yes : It slows thing down
winbind nested groups = Yes : It doesn't work
winbind refresh tickets = yes : not needed
template shell = /bin/false : It is a default setting
server services = +dns : Interesting one this, if it was '-dns' instead,
it would mean you are using Bind9 instead of the internal dns server.
If you aren't using Bind9, you should definitely remove this line.
I take it you have created a couple of groups (poweruser & ws_admin)
and given them a gidNumber attribute. Normally users & groups are
mapped to xidNumbers in idmap.ldb and this is where your 'dead' groups
are coming from, they are not 'dead', they are probably 'Well Known
SIDS'. You can find out who they are by searching in idmap.ldb with
ldbsearch or pdbedot.
