You would need to run (as root) 'net cache flush' after changing to
winbind.

Er, you raised the possibility of using different name services, not I.

This is indeed a problem, Samba is a rapidly moving target, but the
fileserver components are really fairly stable.

And you need those lines, without them, there is nowhere to store and
allocate IDs for the 'Well known SIDs'

All I can tell you is, With a correctly set up smb.conf on a Unix
domain member, you do not need ldap for authentication, yes there may
be times when you need to carry out an ldapsearch, but most of the time
you can use kerberos instead.
